Anya Roberts-Toney

We first saw Anya Roberts-Toney’s work on the Stephanie Cheftas Projects Instagram (@stephaniechefasprojects). Being suckers for brushwork, dreamy color choices, and nuances of mystery and femininity, we had to learn more about her and her work. It became obvious she was a great choice to be featured on the blog! We hope you enjoy learning more about her and her work as much as we did! Anya Roberts-Toney received her BA from Brown University in Providence, RI and her MFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally at locations including Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, Dust to Dust Projects, Killjoy Collective, The Portland ‘Pataphysical Society, the Office at Russo Lee Gallery, Somos Gallery, and Stephanie Chefas Projects, and she is a recent recipient of the Stumptown Artist Fellowship. Originally from Seattle, WA, she currently lives and works in Portland, OR. Explaining more ab

Chelsea Gustafsson

We can’t get enough of the painterly brushstrokes and beautiful colors that go into the still lives of Chelsea Gustafsson; I want to sit back in one of her chairs and ask her all about her work! Gustaffson is an Australian artist, from Barwon Heads. Her delicately detailed works often explore themes around society and the environment; she is represented by Flinders Lane Gallery in Melbourne. See more of her beautiful work at www. chelseagustafsson.com and on Instagram @chelsea_gustafsson

Jo Illustrates!

Work featuring great color, architecture, an eye for design, and fun shops?! Yes please! If this intrigues you as much as us, check out Jo Illustrates! Jo Illustrates! is a project by a Sydney based artist who dabbles in illustration; she draws inspiration from a past life of studying graphic design and architecture, working in a graphic style that is detail orientated. Jo was kind enough to give us some insight into how she approaches her work: I use a combination of copic markers, paint pens and felt tip markers in my work and find the materials I use inform the type of art I create. Almost as if they are in charge and it's my job to figure out how to form an image from their application. I find approaching my art in this way is not only expressive, but methodical and puzzle like.  I am inspired by architecture, music, travel, design, pattern and colour. You can see more of her work on Instagram   @_jo_illustrates or on Etsy  http://w
