Artist Crush: Emma Williams

February 19th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Emma Williams is a painter of still-lifes from the UK who clearly loves pottery. According to New Craftsman Gallery Emma trained in textile design and worked as a freelance textile designer before becoming a full time artist. These pieces appear faded and have a more subdued feel compared to her other work, but they grow on you.

Artist Crush: Jonna Pedersen

April 4th, 2011 · No Comments

Sometimes the best things in life find their way to you- such is the case with today’s crush, Danish artist Jonna Pedersen. Pedersen is based in Copenhagen and paints both pop-art-y still-lifes and cityscapes of Copenhagen, Berlin and New York. I think she is one of the most talented artists I’ve come across; her work is aesthetic, modern yet timeless and full of poignant observation. As my husband observed, her work is part Edward Hopper and part Andy Warhol.

Natural History by Anne Smith

October 5th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Feminine, detailed work by London illustrator Anne Smith via design*sponge. Smith’s series “Natural History” is a beautiful take on traditional flora and fauna illustrations.

Anne sites early Staffordshire and Russian Revolutionary pottery, Shaker gift drawings, Natural History illustrations, decorative arts archive pages and Mughal miniatures as influences.
