365 Paintings for Ants with Lorraine Loots from Gareth Pon on Vimeo.

A film by @garethpon (instagram.com/garethpon) about @lorraineloots (instagram.com/lorraineloots)

Lorraine Loots is an artist based in Cape Town, she started a 365 project at the beginning of 2013. Every day she paints a miniature painting, each with a different theme. She’s got an amazing story of how creatives can find unique ways to take their talents and make a difference and it was my privilege to be able to tell her story.

Check out her entire project on her blog paintingsforants.tumblr.com/archive
