Vibrant Colour Creations by Jessica Gonacha Swift

Today I would like to share the artwork and surface pattern designs of the very talented Jessica Gonacha Swift. She has a very varied and equally creative portfolio of designs that I just love.

Jessica's work is full of explosions of patterns and organic shapes that are linked with swirls and drips of colour. Elegant birds, flora, fauna and quotes embellish her designs to make them uniquely quirky and distinctive.



The bold and vivid colours Jessica incorporates within her artwork create and fun and positive effect. Jessica uses a range of mixed media techniques to build interesting layers and textural effects in her artwork.

Sarah Graham's Mouthwatering Pick and Mix

I am totally mesmerized by Sarah Graham's unbelievably realistic paintings. From the selection below you can clearly see her amazing talent at capturing sweets, lollypops, flying sorcers, shrimps, gobstoppers and jelly bears to name a scrummy few.

With my sweet tooth there is no way I could manage with one of these brightly coloured, delectable paintings decorating my living room, I would be constantly rummaging in the sweetie tin.



Sarah paints these delicious paintings in a photorealism style, you could almost reach and out take a sweet for yourself. Her use of bold and vivid colours create a fun and playful atmosphere that you can't help but love.

 


"Imagery is often borrowed from childhood; sweet things, toys, stuff that might evoke a sense of wonderment, and ultimately nostalgia." Sourced



Sarah was born in the market town on Hitchin, Hertfordshire UK. She studied for a Foundation Dourse in Art and Design before completing a BA in Fine Art at De Montfort University.

The Striking Beauty of Nature by Noel Badges Pugh

Good morning! I thought I would share Noel Badges Pugh’s amazing talent of drawing both flora and fauna with you today. His beautifully simple, yet strikingly detailed botanical illustrations and scientific drawings amaze me. Noel’s flowers, insects and bugs are uniquely captured and showcase the structural beauty of nature in captivating and intricate detail. Simple individual artistic techniques Noel uses include ink, graphite and watercolour. I love how he artistically includes these along with subject matter in his photographs of his artwork.




“Inspired by nature and dreams, all's created with an utmost appreciation for the details and structure of each subject.”



Noel Badges Pugh gained a B.F.A in Painting from San Francisco Art Institute and then a Masters Certificate in Science Illustration from UC Santa Cruz. You can clearly see how his education and experience has inspired his accurate style and how his imagination and artistic flair has transformed his subject matter.

Kim Anderson's Enchanted Spring Gardens!

I have been meaning to share the enchanting work of British artist and illustrator Kim Anderson with you for a long time. Since spring has most certainly arrived I thought there seemed no better time, so hopefully her designs will bring a little sunshine to your day too!

As soon as I spotted Kim's work I was drawn in to the intricate and beautiful detail she captures in her designs. Working on a range of mixed media surfaces, Kim combines techniques of paper collage, paint, pen and ink and embellishment. I love how the inclusion of recycled book text and swirly handwritten words merge into her illustrations and interestingly become part of her design. Little butterflies, flowers and swirls beautifully decorate her designs and sometimes she includes a little highlight of glitter.
