Nicole Sanabria







Remember what we mentioned the other day about being jealous of artists who create three-dimensional work that the user can interact with? We discovered the work of a Nicole Sanabria, who paints on vintage mirrors. She paints beautifully rendered images on repurposed antiques, creating a stunning juxtaposition between a modern and vintage imagery.

Nicole Sanabria is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around painting and photography. Throughout her life, Nicole has always needed to have a creative outlet and as a child she was heavily influenced by her artist grandmother who inspired her to create.

She was struck by an idea to extend her art beyond the canvas and the result of this idea is her current series "Mirrors". This series is the transformation of antique hand mirrors into backdrops for her paintings. She explores the pairing of frame to scene, and letting the subject extend beyond the glass. By finding these old items she breathes a new life into them.

You can find her work online at www.nicolesanabriaart.etsy.com and on Instagram @nicolesanabria

Raili Jänese

Capturing personality in a painting is no easy task, especially when it comes to animals. Raili Jänese creates graphic inspired work, in which she explores the nature of various domestic and wild animals, giving life and personality in two dimensional forms, using just a few lines!
Raili Jänese is a self-taught artist from Estonia, who has always been interested in visual arts and design. She moved to Seattle WA in 2018, where she decided to change career paths and follow her passion for creating art.
Curious about animals and their behavior, she utilizes different characters and shapes in her work. She has enjoyed observing and being around animals since childhood, trying to figure out their nature. She is fascinated by how much an animal can tell us without words; serving as inspiration for simplified shapes on her paintings.
In addition to  painting with acrylic mediums, Raili is interested in graphic design and digital art.  She can be often found sketching something on her tablet …

Beautiful brushwork, color, patterns, portraits, graphic line quality, botany, we love every aspect of Sarah Ammons' work!  

Sarah was born and raised east of Toronto, Canada, on a beach on Lake Ontario. Sarah became interested in art at a young age, spending every available minute drawing, and developing her techniques. After high school, she spent a year in an interdisciplinary liberal arts program in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the University of King's College, studying Western literature and philosophy.
