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.
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!
Now here’s a fun way of having your dog, cat, bird, brother, mother or entire family captured in a precious piece of art: custom portraits on pendants by Nicomade. Aren’t these the cutest? And you’ll even be able to carry them around wherever you go! I’d get me a bulldog just so that I can have them made on one of Nico’s pendants. No, I won’t do that of course, but he’s my favorite of the bunch!
With my love for illustration and a continuously growing obsession for ceramics, Genevieve Dionne‘s one of a kind ceramic illustrations are the perfect way to start off the new year. Aren’t these amazing?! Genevieve draws ladies, botanical and lots of other items on clay which, after their visit to the kiln, become one of a kind pieces of art that I would just love to see on my shelves. Have a peek on Genevieve’s inspiring Instagram to see many more of her creations and videos of her works in progress.
