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

Nancy Gruskin

  Modern still life and figural paintings capturing the beauty in daily experiences, Nancy Gruskin's work creates a narrative with beautiful brushwork and use of color. We love the gestural quality and implied forms  of her work, adding a fresh perspective to classic still lives.  Nancy Gruskin is a figurative and still life painter from Concord, Massachusetts.   She received a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Connecticut College and an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Art History from Boston University.   After teaching architectural history for several years, she now devotes herself to painting full-time.   Her paintings emerge from everyday experiences and familiar views and are based on direct observation, photographs, invention and memory.   Gruskin has shown her work across the United States and has an upcoming exhibition in Australia.   She teaches painting at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts.    More of her work can be viewed at www.nancygruskin.com
