Jennifer Davis

Jennifer Davis paints with a soft soothing palate. Her paintings invite you into a dream like setting with  whimsical characters and creatures. 

Her newest work, however, is much more dark and biting.  Portraits of beasts or monsters are shown with a bulls eye on their chest. And while each creature seems a little more sinister, her sense of humor resonates though little nuances - such as a tiny bee-like creature buzzing around, creatures sporting a bow or stars and another visible though the spokes of a bicycle -  still all  painted in her usual pastel palate but with black backgrounds and undertones. I love the contrast.

You can check out Jennifer's website &  blog.
Her work is sold at Halogen and some of her small pieces are sold at Enormous Tiny Art.

Lauren Woehler

Lauren Woehler is a mixed media artist that works with acrylics and watercolors.  She's another fantastic artist that I discovered on Etsy. Her paintings are so soft and are all so different in style. I really love this top painting.

See more of her work on her website &  blog.

Eleanor Hardwick

WOW! It's hard to believe English photographer, Eleanor Hardwick is just 15 years old . Her photography is incredibly mature. 

Her hobby progressed into passion as she became interested in fashion and portraiture. Eleanors photos are generally staged with the use of props. Her choice of subject matter is so interesting. 

She is completely versatile - her photos sometimes seem dark and moody or haunting and other times show a fun and whimsical side. She is able to capture something beautiful in each and every photo.
