Ashley Barlow…

    This is the work of mixed media artist and graphic designer Ashley Barlow.  Barlow uses collage, paint, embroidery, and illustration to create her pieces.  On her website she says: “My art is of the quirky whimsical nature, I am drawn to playful, light imagery with a graphic nature. I’m always trying new things and […]

Shae DeTar…

    Stunning hand painted photographs by NYC-based artist Shae DeTar.  DeTar works in both analog and digital photography, and after printing her photos she transforms them by adding layers of paint. Detar works with many well-known companies like Aritizia, Cosabella, Alice and Olivia and Ballet Beautiful.  I especially love the campaign Tangerine that she created […]

Kelly Reemtsen…

    Well, I always do yard work in my vintage party dress!  Don’t you? I’m totally smitten with these vibrant paintings by Los Angeles based artist Kelly Reemtsen.  I love that it’s not clear if the women are using these tools to do some work around the house, or possibly, something more sinister.  And […]

Maz Dixon…

    Yes, it is January and I’m dreaming of summer vacation.  I am so ready to hang up the winter coats, and dig out the beachwear! These wonderfully quirky paintings are by Australian artist Maz Dixon.  Dixon’s series Holiday Attraction and sequel Colony, are based on kitschy vintage postcards.  She explores how these mass-produced souvenir images […]

Brazilian artist Andrea Brown works in many mediums, including painting, sculpture and installation.  Brown’s artist page on the Salt Fine Art website states: “Her skill as a sculptor informs […]

Alejandrina Herrera…

    I love these fun drawings from Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera. Using pencil, watercolour, and collage Herrera creates interesting little narratives.  I especially enjoy when she plays with size and scale.  Check out Herrera’s website for more. (I had that little pully dog when I was young and now my daughter loves playing with it!) […]

Ron Isaacs…

    Can you believe these sculptures are made of wood? Really they are! Artist Ron Isaacs makes his sculptures from Finnish birch plywood and acrylic paints, he uses an additive method that can take several hundred wood pieces to create. On his artist page of the Snyderman Gallery website Isaacs says: “That an object […]

Will Cotton…

    Well today is my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with cake! These delicious paintings are by artist Will Cotton.  Cotton creates fantasy lands full of frosting and candy.  You may remember Katy Perry’s music video for California Gurls where she walks through a sugary world, Cotton was the Artistic Director for […]

Sophie Blackall…

    Oh boy!  I heart reading missed connection ads!  Well… the funny ones, not the creepy ones. Artist Sophie Blackall is well known for illustrating children’s books, especially the wonderful series Ivy + Bean, by Annie Barrows.  However a few years back she decided she wanted to balance this with some personal work, something […]
