say hi to_ Holiday Guide | I. The Artist

The daughter of an Anthropology professor and Jewellery designer growing up in the suburbs of Milwaukee. Selma grew up celebrating the holidays with family around a menorah; enjoying latkes and eight nights of gifts. Her parents encouraged her to explore her creative side as a child and she later became a psychologist specialising in Art Therapy. Selma now lives in Berlin Mitte, in an spacious loft with her boyfriend, a music producer, Jens.

Her style is admittedly a bit eccentric and over the top, yet always polished in that way where you wish you would have had thought of it first. She has a physical resemblance to Natalie Portman with a bob and the style of a 2016esque Annie Hall. She feels most comfortable in spaces saturated in color, collects interesting accessories with a soft spot for geometry, a passion for handmade goods and dreams to have a contemporary art collection to rival Larry and Marilyn Fields one day.

Have a peek at some things we could imagine being on Selma's holiday gift list this year for her + Jens. Perhaps they will inspire you, if you are shopping for your own artist or musician this year.
