Painterly Love

Having recently (well not recently so much as in August...) moved into our very own lovely house, I've been on the hunt for some gorgeous artwork to adorn our walls. Sometimes as a designer I get so bogged down with actually 'designing' so it's nice to occasionally take a little time out to search for some inspiring art, just for art's sake rather than research/inspiration/work!

I have surprised myself a bit with what I'm drawn to... I seem to be attracted to quite painterly, often abstract pieces. (Often with a hint of pink, naturally!) Some of my favourites along the way of my search up to now include Lola Donoghue (above) who as well as creating abstract works, also has some pretty lovely fashion illustration in her Etsy shop. I'm also loving this fine art design (below) from none other than Black Olive Studio - which is a greeting card design!

Also on my new discovery I've found Sally King Benedict (below).

Above is a piece by Elaine Pamphilon which I'd love to get my hands on... but my total favourites on my quest so far (and they have been on my wish list for quite some time!) are these florals by the wonderfully talented Charlotte Hardy. I'm such a big fan of her work and it is one of my lifelong aims to oneday own one of her masterpieces!

Do you have any suggestions to help me on my new trail to find artwork? Any artists, illustrators or Etsy shops you think I might like would all be gratefully received! Hoping for walls packed to the brim like this one courtesy of the Glitter Guide!
