Emily Moore

From the second we saw the beautiful work of Emily Moore, we had to see more and find out about her and her process. She seemingly effortlessly combines geometric motifs with beautiful landscape and city scenes, creating breathtaking moments for the viewer.
Emily Moore is a Scottish artist interested in the patterns and forms found within mountainous environments and the contrasting, architectural structures which inhabit them. Her paintings attempt to explore the tension between these two confecting themes, looking to strike a balance within the final composition. Landscape has always been a primary source of inspiration for Moore. Her work is created using an amalgamation of personal images, usually photographs taken to record her travels. Each body of work is a documentation of those experiences, the creative process allowing Moore to recall each place and combine them to create new, anonymous landscapes.
The physical act of creating a piece, the surface and materials, has always b…

Christina Massey

We are very excited to feature the amazing sculptures and installations created with repurposed materials by Christina Massey! We love that she creates these pieces with reused materials to create compositions of color, texture, and shine!
Christina Massey is a mixed media artist working in sculpture, painting, printmaking and collage. Her works incorporate everything from re-purposed textiles to re-purposed aluminum craft beer cans and often even her own past artworks to create colorful abstract works heavy in pattern complex in form. Heavily influenced by "craft" and the language and debate between fine art and craft, her work utilizes many textile techniques like hand stitching and weaving combined with painting, printmaking and glass blowing.
Massey's work has been exhibited extensively in over a dozen solo exhibitions including with the Noyes Art Museum, Rush Arts Galleries, Brown University and abroad in cities such as London, Toronto and Tokyo. She has won multiple …

Faith Humphrey Hill

Knit paintings?! Yes please! Happy to have Faith Humphrey Hill and her amazing work on the blog today. Vibrant color and texture, in addition to some amazing drawing and rendering skills!
Faith Humphrey Hill creates drawings and hand knit paintings inspired by research in the visual arts. Ms. Humphrey Hill is drawn to representational artwork that embraces the interconnectedness of us all. Figurative work including portraits are a common subject fueled by a curiosity for artists working in various times and media. Neuroaethetics, art theory, art history, psychology of art, creativity studies, and artist interviews are all sources of inspiration to the artist. Ms. Humphrey Hill retained a studio practice through a 20 year career in the arts in which she held leadership positions in galleries, school, museums, community art centers, as well as served on non profit boards and municipal art committees.

Clare Celeste Börsch

Collages and installations?! Absolutely breathtaking worlds of nature created by Clare Celeste Börsch!
Clare Celeste Börsch has been assimilating to different cultures and environments her entire life - having lived in Brazil, the US, Italy, Honduras, Argentina and Germany. Rich with texture and detail, each composition pays tribute to her capacity to transform her archive of experiences into hallucinogenic ecosystems of their own. The lush assemblages of fauna and flora exude a visceral and intimate fragility. They speak to the mutable nature of memories as reconstructions that border on mythologies.

Amandine Bouet

We were enticed by Amandine Bouet's work upon first viewing! Gorgeous texture, shimmer, and embellishments steal the show in the world of fibers!

Bouet is a French fiber artist whose engaging use of media sparks the imagination and things unknown. She combines material, colors, texture, and sparkle to create wearable and fine art pieces.
Bouet gave great insight into her work and process:

My artistic work is defined as an internal journey. A window towards my soul allowing to touch my personality. In an instant guided by my intuition I let decorate an inspired theme. My work results from a need for aesthetic balance between the kinds male/feminine and the organic. Between paradoxical desire for wealth of material and a need for minimalism. It is the form of life which takes shape by unifying. A free expression in perpetual evolution. Among this exploration of new consistencies, the texture becomes the Ariadne's thread to enter symbiosis.

Heather Millar

Memories from childhood, beautiful animals, and flawless application of paint! We are very excited to feature Heather Millar today on the blog!

Gravitating to the idea of capturing a moment in time, Heather Millar's work is reflective of vintage ambiance steeped in nostalgia, ranging from childhood toys, vintage family snapshots and portraiture, landscape and wildlife caught in a still moment.

She elaborates, stating:

I love the idea of having something tangible to represent that moment caught in time. So often our memories obscure what was our reality at the time, so bringing back those images in the form of a painting on canvas lets the viewer treasure what was possibly once lost.

We can't get enough to these vibrant images! If you can't either, find more online at www.heathermillarart.com and on Instagram @heathermillarart


Em Deusien

If you enjoy clever illustrations, bold line work, saturated colors, creatures, and a touch of whimsy, you must follow Ritual 44! 

Ritual 44 aka Em Deusien is a Sydney based artist and illustrator with a penchant for witchy, spacey other worldly beings and places.

Art making is something that has come naturally to Em since she her youth, making up and drawing her own Pokemon. As she grew older life distracted her and she forgot how important creating art was to her, it wasn't until 2016 she again heard the call and picked up the pen and hasn't put it down since.

Becoming increasingly disenchanted with the society we live in, she uses her art as a way to escape. She uses her art to create a world that is not dissimilar to our own, but with a gliding of surrealism and whimsy. She creates art that she hopes makes people feel empowered and curious.
