Eco-friendly Modern Tropical Art for YOUR Home.

Hi you!

I'm Miriam, a German artist who creates tropical wall art. For tropical flowers, plants and tropical animals are my favorites, that's why you will find them in one way or the other in my modern tropical art - may it be a tropical portrait, custom portrait, tropical stickers or fine art post cards. My art is inspired by my traveling experience to many beautiful places on this wonderful planet. Get your own custom portrait with exotic animals and bring the tropics to your home.

Sustainability and the preservation of our beautiful planet matters to me. From my product sourcing to shipping I have in-depth researched and found the most sustainable, eco-friendly options for you. So you're basically buying beautiful art products, but you also make a difference for this planet by buying my vinyl free stickers, plastic free and vegan art!
For every sale made in this shop, I will plant a tree via Plant for the Planet to help giving our little ones the opportunity to also live their dream in a still functional environment.

If you have any questions or wishes, feel free to reach out to me any time. I speak English 🇺🇸 and German 🇩🇪, as well as some Spanish 🇪🇸.

My art is looking forward to be send to you as a gift for surfer friends, a gift for nature lovers, a tropical housewarming gift or simply unique wall art 💕

A smile,
Miriam

Frequently asked questions
What is an "embellishment"?

Most of my prints and original artworks are available in two options: without and with shimmering extra beautiful effects. The embellished fine art prints and original artworks are turned into unique artworks themselves by repainting selected areas with up to five different shimmering and pearlescent colors which will catch your eyes when looking at the print from different angles. If you are looking for a very special and captivating piece of art, I would highly recommend to go for this option.

Since art is something special and exclusive, all prints are only available in small quantities. Once the sell out, I will not print them again.

How sustainable is the shipping?

Since I am aware that shipping is not eco friendly, but I still want people from all over the world to enjoy my art, I will compensate for each product shipped and plant a tree via Plant for the Planet with every purchase made in my shop. The purchase will happen once a month and if you would like to receive the certificate, feel free to contact me, I will happily provide it via e-mail.
The envelopes for shipping are made from recycled materials which are FSC certified and they are recyclable. I even reuse the packaging of my print orders – so please don’t worry if you find your package thoroughly re-sealed with eco-friendly tape. The sleeves, in which I wrap the prints and paintings for additional protection, are made from glassine.

Custom and personalized orders

My original artworks are done on vegan 300gsm Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper with vegan paints from Lukas 1862, Van Gogh and Daniel Smith as well as Winsor and Newton (which also is not vegan as I got to know, so I will be using them up as well), White Nights (which I received as a gift, I know they are honey based but yet I will also use them up) and some hand-made, high quality watercolors from small sellers on Etsy who I would like to support as well. In order to preserve the vibrancy of the colors, I use a UV varnish after completing a piece. However, I advise you to not expose your beautiful original to direct sunlight.

What's special about the fine art prints?

The fine art prints are high quality reproductions of my artwork which are meant to last for decades. The fine art prints in my shop are printed on professional fine art paper, which is manufactured in Germany. The beautifully structured paper is astoundingly soft and has the haptics of watercolor paper. Hence, each print is indistinguishable from an original with an incredible depth of color – at a very affordable price (compared to the original). I get the prints made at a German print shop which is specialized in reproduction of artworks and photography. Therefore, the colors of each print are astonishingly vibrant and they have a beautiful depth.
Each print series is limited to 10 prints - so make sure to get your favorite soon!

What are Eco Prints?

I have found a German printing company whose supply chain is aligned with my values by being environmentally-friendly, contributing to social und sustainable projects, as well as animal protection. The production of the eco prints is climate-neutral and renewable energy is used. The prints are made with vegan, eco-friendly plant oil-based ink on recycled paper meeting certain eco-standards. The paper is certified by Euroblume or Blauer Engel and, to top that, recycled.
The prints are colorful and rather matt. However, since the paper and ink used may be eco-friendly and organic but not archival, the beauty might fade a bit some years down the line. They are a good budget option to enjoy your favorite artwork at a very affordable price.

How sustainable is the packing?

Instead of plastic sleeves I use recyclable glassine paper sleeves and reuse silk paper that came with my print orders. In that way, I try to be as sustainable as possible. For the aesthetics of your order, I seal every sleeve/wrapping with a pretty and minimalistic logo sticker made from recycled paper. The steady cardboard shipping envelopes are also made from recycled paper. Furthermore, my "Thank You" note ist made from seed paper: you can plant it and it will turn into a small flower garden? Helping bees strive and being sustainable has never been easier 🤗✨
