Ju Castelo’s colorful illustrations make me feel quite happy about being a city girl <3 Her beautiful watercolor based paintings portray life in (big and small) cities in such a warm and cheerful style. I love how she paints her folks in so many diverse ways. And those colorful little houses.. wishing I was there right now!
Once Lindsay Stripling’s paintings catch your attention it’s pretty hard to let them go. There is so much color and chaos to absorb in her beautiful, slightly surreal works. Love them! Each tells a mysterious story.
A magical fragment that might make you remember a dream you once had.

It’s the acrobat lady that first got my attention to Rae Ritchie beautiful illustrations. Isn’t she gorgeous? Then I also discovered llamas, cactuses and illustrated recipes, all in that same whimsical style. I bet the fifth one called Cactus Mountain Dream would look incredible on a plain kitchen wall!
