“Why Crispyraspberries?” many people asked me.
“Why not?” I asked back.
“Are raspberries ever crispy at all?” people insisted.
“Of course they are!” I replied.
“Oh, I get it – this is child’s play!” some people said.
“Well, yes and no... Crispyraspberries remind us of all the small and simple, magical things that only kids’ eyes can see."
Hi, my name is Evi Psaltidi. Originally from Athens, Greece, I live and paint in Vienna, Austria. Children’s imagination has always fascinated me, so I created Crispyraspberries as my excuse for dwelling in fantasy land. I paint with water colours because I like the transparency and simplicity that is typical of this material. Simplicity and naivety are main features of my artwork, which was initially inspired by my children and later on, by the children I see hiding inside the adults around me.
My illustrations aspire to tell a tale and bring out the child within. Crispyraspberries are narratives about people and things that shape our daily lives.
