Collage

Amy Ross

I’m not sure what these are called, but I love them! They are collages by Massachusetts-based artist Amy Ross. Bringing together flora and fauna, Amy creates all kinds of strange, delightful creatures that I wouldn’t mind saving a spot on my wall for. 

Amy Ross graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, in 2000. Her works have been exhibited in Musea and Galleries around the US. She also creates watercolor paintings that are just as beautiful & curious as the collages below, so make sure to visit her website for many more:

Sophie Woodrow

I have been staring at these precious creatures by Sophie Woodrow forever. But I simply can’t decide which one is my favorite because I love them all too much. Life can be difficult sometimes!

Sophie Woodrow had an interest in working with clay from a very early age. She graduated from Falmouth College of Art with a BA in Studio Ceramics in 2001. Creating her wonderfully strange animals, she uses her own imagination & subconscious visions for inspirations. On her site you will find a video with some live images of her creatures and and a statement by Sophie herself. Enjoy!

Harriet Lee-Merrion

I recently came across the work of Harriet Lee-Marrion and immediately fell for her style. I love the (little) oddities in her drawings. Surreal, simple and yet peculiar enough to stop & stare when they cross your eye.. The lady with nine heads is probably my favorite <3

Harriet Lee-Marrion is an illustrator who lives in Bristol. You can visit her site for many more loveliness, or follow her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Tumblr for updates.

Painting

Gillian Warden

Do you know that moment when you go to bed and you realize you are falling asleep? That kind of in-between-point where you’re still awake yet your mind is no longer bothering you with thoughts and instead filled with shapes and images you do not control?

I’m not sure if this sounds familiar at all, but for me, that moment comes to mind when I stare at these delightful, magical works by Australian artist Gillian Warden. The first time her paintings crossed my eye was love at first sight, as a lovely sense of calmness overwhelmed me. Her creatures are portrayed in such a beautiful dream-like style. And even though their surroundings are somewhat blurry, their expressions are incredibly powerful. Gillian Warden’s paintings offer a glimpse into a world that is different from that of ours and easily lets us drift off to our imagination. Simply breathtaking.
