She Paints Exotic Scenes Inspired by Childhood Memories

Roeqiya Fris is a Dutch-Egyptian artist, teacher and adventurer who lives in Rotterdam. She creates these eye-popping colourful illustrations of exotic scenes inspired by her childhood
memories of travelling – and I've just discovered her Etsy shop

"My mother is from Egypt and I have beautiful memories of being in Egypt for holidays as a child," she tells me. "Everything there looked so different from the Netherlands, the colours, the buildings, the food, my family. I loved it! And these memories are the inspiration for my illustrations."

Here are some of her pictures to get you in the mood...
