We’ve been seeing a lot of embroidered art as of late but I must say that so far, I’ve been most impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. I can’t get over how skillfully she is able to incorporate ornate embroidery techniques with her own pencil drawings and watercolors, pushing the boundaries of traditional and popular culture. Simply beautiful.
To pink or not to pink . . . thoughts?
Last week while in Alaska, I fell in love with local artist V Rae‘s work. Her series of Alaskan wildlife, Fur Fin & Feathers, is done with vibrant watercolors on paper textured canvas or Yupo. The result is a color that is richer and more translucent than conventional watercolor applications. Her technique is unique to V Rae’s self proclaimed thermal imaging mind. She seriously has me wishing I could borrow her eyes just for a day . . .
I’ve been craving oversized, statement jewels as of late and thus, scouring the internet for unique baubles. Enter Gold Philosophy – a newly launched destination for vibrant and dramatic costume jewelry. With a handful of sparkly earrings and bracelets on my wish list, I’m already looking forward to seeing how their assortment will grow . . .
