She's a Gold DiggerSpring Into Creativity
Sunday -- April 27, 2014
The sun is shining and spring is in full swing! At least in Los Angeles ;) As the flowers start to bloom my creative mind starts to run wild. All I want to do is spend the day making things look pretty. In the spirit of art and beauty this month I'd like to share some of the incredible artists that inspire me.

ARTIST Nanami Cowdroy
Nanami Cowdroy is a self-taught artist with illustrations typically comprised of pen & pencil, ink, water color and spray paint. Her signature style is a monochrome palette with her name 'Nanami' (meaning 'Seven Seas' in Japanese) stamped in red. As I've mentioned before black and white illustration is one of my favorite styles so she's definitely at the top of my list. Her artwork is featured on a wide range of products, skateboards, apparel, phone cases, and more. Check out her Shop Online

Silvia Pelissero, an Italian painter also known as Agnes-Cecile, brings water colors to a whole new level! It's truly a talent the way she captures darkness with such vibrant color and softness. View More of Her Work Online
