I find inspiration in everything around me. Sometimes it’s a brightly coloured wall on the way to work. Sometimes it’s a bud just starting to form on a blossom tree. And then there’s Instagram. Here are this month’s faves. Some old and some new finds, I love all of these accounts.
1. Barbara Kitallides @barbarakitallides
I’m so blessed to be able to call Barbara my friend. I’ve known her for almost 20 years now and her talent is incredible. Her paintings are created using the most amazing layering of colours. They make you want to touch them to feel the textures and engage with her creative process.
I have two pieces on canvas that Barbara gave me for my 40th. And now Ava has her very own piece of art too, given to her for her 5th birthday. Lucky girl!
2. Do Re Me Creative @doremecreative
I just love this account which is run by founder, Madeleine Grummet (Stylist/Artist/Writer). I’ve always loved mixed media collages and these are so great. I’m going to try some with Ava soon.
3. Meredith Wing @moomooi
What a truly gorgeous account this is. Meredith’s fashion illustrations are so lovely and the way she incorporates food, florals and greenery into the styling of the shots is so clever.
4. Laura Blythman @laurablythman
I’m certain that some of you will be familiar with Laura’s work. Whimsical is the word that always comes to mind when I see her work. I love her sense of colour and the collages are so sweet. Some day, I’d like to add to Ava’s art collection with one of Laura’s pieces.
Hope you enjoyed my fave four and stay tuned for more next month xo
