Lorraine, who lives in Cape Town, South Africa, decided to set aside one hour a day to get creative.

And the short timeframe only allowed her to paint small, intricate pieces.

Lorraine, 29, spends between three and six hours on her work, and will even be painting on her wedding day.

All the paintings are snapped up immediately – while she has already attracting tens-of-thousands of Instagram fans.

Lorraine, 29, said: "The best part of my day has to be when I get to sit down and paint."

Lorraine, 29, said: “The best part of my day has to be when I get to sit down and paint.”

She said: “Some days are really hard – I think the pressure of having to create something for someone every single day starts to effect you on a subconscious level.

“The best part of my day has to be when I get to sit down and paint.

“Initially I thought of the project as a massive challenge like a marathon I would be relieved to survive.

“It also became this meditative time: a quiet and almost sacred part of each day.

“The response has been immensely positive and almost overwhelming.”
