silvia beneforti offers artworks and handmade products for a nice lifestyle

We are happy to have the talented artist @silviabeneforti join our international marketplace with handmade artwork, products and printable (downloadable) toys. Downloadable, printable toys are genius and darling! A perfect gift for kids or the child in yourself 😉

I can describe her style as whimsical, cute, gentle, fun, friendly, peaceful and warm. Her artwork is bound to bring joy into your life! 

I really appreciate Silvia bringing lessons her family taught her about sustainability into her life and her work. Aside from growing much of her own food Silvia strives for minimal waste, including using recycled materials, when possible, in her artwork and products.

I personally believe this is the direction we should all be heading and challenging ourselves and our friends to find creative ways to be more sustainable. Bravo Silvia!

In her own words (borrowed from their Homesteaders Co-op store):

Since I was a child my family has the habit to try to make a positive impact on the environment, because we lived in a small village between many forest where everyone knew how important is to take care of the environment. Now I live in a small city in Tuscany (in the center of Italy), a small green area where everyone can easely lives taking care on the Nature around us. Simple actions that help to make our world better day by day. For example, since I was a child, in my family we have the habit to reduce the trash in different way: we buy just durable things (no throwaway plates and forks, for example), to re-use and recycle the most part of the things. Thanks to my father who has a large garden, we can eat veggies all the years, our own veggies. I use a similar approach also in the most part of my creative works, for example I love to recycle the cardboard boxes to give them a new life in form of sculptures or like a surface to paint. In my shop you’ll find some of my artworks inspiring by animals (paintings on paper or little sculptures), some of my handmade pocket journals featuring my own illustration and a lot of different things, all of them made by my hand in my own lab-house and using different materials I find in my area.

In her own words (borrowed from their Homesteaders Co-op store):

I am an artist and a mother of a 4-year old boy, who has spend the last couple of years on the road, living from my art and music and “roadsteading” – harvesting and processing wild plants and trading for produce on farms on the way.

Now I have just bought my own land with some friends and family – a 12 hectare piece of land with 2500m2 of old buildings in a forest on the Danish island Bornholm! We are working on restoring the buildings and create an eco village on this amazing, big plot of land! I hope to soon be able to include products from the land in my shop!

Until then my shop will consist of handmade arts and crafts – custom artworks like portraits and illustrations, handbound notebooks, postcards, stickers, coloring books and posters!

I try as much as possible to use recycled materials, because I have been a recycler and anti consumer from childhood!

When I buy paper for my creations, I always go for recycled paper or paper made from algae or other sustainable sources, but I also make my own paper from old paper and plant fibres.
