Who made this?


This gal right here! Hello, my full name is Marinda Jansen van Rensburg.

I’m originally from Pretoria, South Africa and do still live here—with my parents. I am so grateful because that is the only thing that allows me to do what I do without the added stress of my creativity having to support me in it’s infant/exploratory stages.

If you have Instagram, you might have seen the photo of my pastel rainbow creation since that one got quite a few regrams; so here we both are with her just as adorable, vibrant friend. Nice to meet you!

🌈 We just like rainbows in general if you couldn’t tell. 🌈
