I’m such a sucker for watercolor + fashion. As I was trying to figure out the perfect art for my office, I stumbled upon Jessica Durrant’s work. I’m loving all the bold colors and minimal details.

Are you a fan of fashion watercolors?

This amazing woman studied art but went on to hold many an odd jobs from shepherdess and truck driver to factory worker and a New York City tour guide. At 40, Béatrice Coron came back to NYC from France to be an artist. Her intricate paper cuttings tell stories. In her statement:

My creative inspiration comes from everything I see and everything I read. For each theme, one story leads to the next, and the creation process weaves different layers of our relations to the universe. In papercutting as in life everything is connected.

I love staring at each piece and imagining their interactions with each other, which is just as she intended!

What interactions today has you thinking?

Watching all the wildlife in the backyard is one of the most fun things of spring (I’ve definitely seen my share of bird/squirrel wars now). That’s why I’m loving Daniel Mackie’s work. Influenced by printmakers of the Ukiyo-e period and navy tattoos, each of the creatures’ habitat are represented inside each animal.

Last time when we were visiting my bestie in LA, we went to the Museum of Jurassic Technology. It’s a pretty interesting little place and I would definitely suggest stopping by to check it out if you’re in the area (be prepared to be a bit confused for the first few exhibits until you just start embracing its quirkiness). Don’t forget to go to the roof and see the sleeping doves. Anyways, there was an exhibit there with little “statues” on the tips of needles. It was kind of incredible. These amazing pencil carvings by Dalton Ghetti reminded me of our trip. He carves them with either a sewing needle or a small triangular blade. How crazy is that chain? I can’t even imagine how you’d go about making such an intricate thing. You must check out the other ones on his website. They are all so innovative!

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Lauren Hom’s Daily Dishonesty

Sometimes I just come across projects that are so clever. They make me smile and make me want to hoard and fill my home with them. Lauren Hom’s Daily Dishonesty project is just that. I can relate to each little lie and each of her versions are hand lettered so perfectly. Even though this makes me sound like a stalker, reading through her website makes me feel like she’s already by fake bff. She’s a lover of brunch, baking, and making things by hand. All things I love. It’s no wonder I love her work too! Check out her other links below.

When I saw the work of Stasia Burrington on The Jealous Curator, I had to share. I’m such a sucker for anything floral and these beautiful patterns cut from quilt fabric and assembled to represent tattoos are just killing it! I need some of these for my closet.

I love it when artists mix textures and styles into their own unique work of art. Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy has done just that with photos by Rocio Aguirre. Plus, I love the little phrases he uses like “Life is beautiful” and “Art cannot be criticized because every mistake is a new creation.”

What are some phrases you live by?

Not many people know this, but when I was young my mom told me I could collect one thing. After much thought, I chose to collect owls. They were known to be wise and I love their big eyes and majestic wings. Every time we were near a thrift shop, I’d rush in to find vintage owls. I stopped my collection around 4th grade because it was already huge. I’ll have to show you one day. They’re all carefully packed away in my parents’ garage. I pulled them out last year and it’s kind of ridiculous how many there are! I find it extra cool that they are so in now. I digress. My point is that I’ve always been drawn to owls and these amazing works of art by John Pusateri were no different. They almost look like he took a paintbrush to real owls. I love them!

Do you like owls?
