Kerstin Hiestermann’s (@khiesti) minimalistic, playful and sometimes odd drawings are proof that, as she asserts, the child in her is still alive. By laying real objects on white paper and adding simple black line drawings, she brings new worlds to life.
Kerstin, an elementary school teacher, pulls inspiration from all around her. “Flowers, plants, food, things from my work and sometimes a word that someone says to me or a question my son asks me. I often see worlds in little things.” “Instagram is my ignition,” says Kerstin. “I love the interaction with all the people all over the world, the inspiration, the mindfulness. I think without Instagram I would never have come to this idea and I would never know how much creativity is inside me.” Be sure to view more of Kerstin’s wonderful, whimsical drawings on Instagram at @khiesti. by instagram http://bit.ly/16JRN5E June 19, 2013 at 10:57AM
