Imagine having your favorite place in the world captured with needle and thread. Little colorful stitches that eternalize the grass, sky and the buildings in a beautiful, one of a kind embroidery to remind you of that spot in a very unique piece of art. This is how Luxembourg based artist Libby Williams combines her passion for art and traveling; after exploring a new city or country, she embroiders the locations that she loved the most onto hoops that portray these places in a whimsical and unique style. And to give her work extra character, she often combines her embroidery with paint too.
This week I stumbled upon a lovely little spot called called Goose Grease; a shop run by Anna Leigh and Juan Carlos Donado, who create a wide range of handmade, super adorable dolls. Born out of a mom’s desire to create wooden toys for her little one, Goose Grease now creates all kinds of wooden folks with different functions: peg dolls, ornaments, custom made families and: an entire pirates vs ninjas chess set!
It’s Esther Sarto’s rich and gorgeous piece called Subtropical Love that first drew my eye to the beautiful collection of one of a kind artworks of Beauton Art Gallery. The colors..the details.. so incredibly gorgeous!
Many artworks of Beauton’s collection seem to have that curious element where they just leave me stare at them forever. Based in Denmark, Beauton Art Gallery offers a carefully curated selection of art to homes worldwide with a mission to promote young, talented artists in various fields. One of their main purposes is to make art accessible to all which is why, besides original artworks, Beauton also offers a large selection of high quality limited edition prints.
Playful splashes of paint, lots of ink and paper cut details.. Michele Moore creates one of a kind patterns and designs that are an absolute delight for the eye. I love how she experiments with different materials and colors, and how many of her surprising combinations result into beautiful imagery that pops off the paper.
I love it when illustrators use different materials and techniques to create beautiful things. Among paper, paint, pencils and crayons, artist Georgie Ellen McAusland uses clay and wood to create whimsical little characters that you can put up on the wall and pin onto your favorite clothes. So cute!
Susanna Sundman, aka Sussuni, was one of the first artists whose lovely work I shared on this blog five years ago. And I still enjoy her dreamy, soft colored creatures so so much! Originally from Sweden and currently based in France, Susanna Sundman is a mixed media artist who uses her love for nature and her imagination to create magical characters of all kinds. Her illustrations include lots of whimsical details which together become harmonious collages of worlds I would love to visit <3
My latest crush: stunning, one of a kind collages by artist Ani Cuenca. Made out of lots of different materials such as ink, paint and paper and applied on large wooden panels. If you look at her beautiful work carefully, you will notice how the attached pieces fluently fall over each other, adding an extra dimension to her carefully constructed pieces. Love!
