The longer I stare at these beautiful ink & watercolor paintings, the more obsessed I’m becoming with Marcy Ellis’ botanical queens. Super fascinating, slightly bizarre and so incredibly gorgeous!
Currently based in Tucson, Arizona, Marcy is an artist and elementary art teacher who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Fine Art in Art Education from the University of Arizona. She has been inspired by nature from her childhood, which she she spent in both rural agriculture and a suburban planned community set in the open desert. In the beautiful pieces below, Marcy focuses on the connectedness between women and nature:
Lissova Craft’s teeny tiny plants make my hands all tickly and eager to play with paper and scissors. Aren’t these the cutest? Cacti, palm trees, ferns and many more blooming greens that will flourish up the wall in any home <3
Artist Hannah Burnworth likes to create all things paper. Handmade books, playful sculptures and color popping, hand sewn collages of botanicals that will stand out on any wall. In her beautiful pieces, Hannah brings together her love for texture, color, nature and the beauty of everyday life. It’s the kind of art that I can stare at forever. Rolling my eyes over the beautiful patterns, spotting new details along the way <3
