Hapy Friday - Beautiful art for art's sake

Having majored in illustration from RISD, my first love has always been painting and drawing, and it'll always be close to my heart. So occasionally I like to feature painters and other artists that I discover and like. Here are my most recent finds

Beautiful collages by mixed media artist Kristen Neveu

This one is my favorite. Isn't it gorgeous?

These striking floral oil paintings are by Jo Beer. I discovered her while working on a design for a wedding invitation and needed a reference photo for ornamental kale. I ran across the painting below

For those who are more into graphic design and poster, check out Fieldtrip's etsy store.

I love this origami heart poster

...and the peace cranes. So pretty.

I'm really loving the Jo Beer Art, very reminiscent of Georgia O'Keefe but you can tell JB has developed her own individual style - there is less blending, harder edges and more detail. Wish I could afford her art! Thanks for sharing her with us.

I've been following you for a while and always look forward to your posts and yummy home interior photos.

I'm a fellow blogger, also with a penchant for beautiful interior spaces and really any good design. Feel free to stop by my blog or follow me.
