People have said that entering my home is like walking straight into my blog. I love to have lots and lots of art upon my walls! To keep my eyes tickled I like to change things around too, so over the years buying prints has become one of my favorite things to do. I keep a list of wannahave art prints on Etsy that I browse through frequently and since the holidays are around the corner, I though it would be nice to share a selection of favorites with you all. That gorgeous illustration by Kate Pugsley is still one of my favorites..
I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two in one of the magical, dazzling illustrated landscapes by artist Sara Boccaccini Meadows. There is so much happening in her beautiful work and I love it up to the tiniest detail! I remember sharing Sara’s work back in 2016 and it’s such a delight to see how her paintings have evolved over the years. For more, visit her website and follow her on Instagram.
I have been following the beautiful work of Italy based artist Margherita Paoletti for a while and figured it’s about time to share some of my favorites with you all. Hidden behind flowers or covered in detailed drawings, there’s something so whimsical and powerful about her beautiful portraits that gets me every time.
There’s something about the beautifully illustrated characters in Nadia Valavani’s drawings that makes me stare at them for a long time. Curious for a story behind their faces, making stories up myself. Nadia draws under the name Old Brown Shoe Stories, which connects to the stories “that each human being carries with.” In this interview at Pikchur Magazine you can read more about Nadia’s beautiful work. To stay up to date of what she is working on, follow her on Instagram.
I wrote about the colorful work of artist Roeqiya Fris some years ago and have been adoring her new creations that have been passing on my Instagram feed since then. Inspired by Arab culture, fashion and nature, Roeqiya’s paintings are rich of countless colors, patterns and details that carry a magical, wanna-be-there kind of atmosphere.. Love!
I remember sharing the wonderful work of illustrator Chloé Joyce some years ago. And as I was scrolling through her Instagram feed today I loved seeing how since then, Chloé has created countless new pieces and her characters are evolving into stunning, charismatic women that are surrounded by pattern and details (and the occasional pet). The gorgeous girl in the third image is my favorite!
I recently stumbled upon the most whimsical drawings that I ended up staring at for quite some time. Charmed by this mythical, friendly looking figure I discovered these charcoal illustrations are part of a narrative series by Mexico City based artist David Álvarez. It’s called I Dreamed I Was the Night and follows this being – the night – wandering through the country side and contemplating its surroundings. So magical!
