Lorna Scobie

Lorna Scobie

at the moment we don’t have a pet (apartment living, sad face) but maybe i’ll just commission Lorna Scobie to paint my ultimate fantasy pet anyway? because her pet portraits are the best. i actually have a note on my phone that i saved from 2012 on the day that Anton and i figured out our ultimate puppy name. yeah, we’re weirdos. and it’s okay.

Jonas Wood

Jonas Wood

Jonas Wood is an LA based artist whose work immediately appealed to me, not only for his graphic style but because of an ever present sense of humour that i just love. you can see how big some of his paintings are in context at his most recent exhibition.

Endre Penovác

a few years ago my dad started painting. as an urban designer he’s always had a pencil in his hand, but he never had the time to flex his creative muscles outside of work. he began experimenting with various mediums, and quickly settled on watercolour painting. i warned him that it was a tough medium – it might look deceptively easy when you see the finished product but actually getting there is, well, an art. there’s no real room for error, unlike oil painting where you can layer and even remove paint if you’ve made a mistake.

Mary Laube

i discovered the work of Mary Laube through Buy Some Damn Art (where you can currently buy some of her original paintings). Mary was born in South Korea but group up in the states, where she received her BFA at Illinois State University. i find her work so graphic and interesting, an artist i would definitely add to my own collection if i could.

Jenny Parsons

i have a habit of browsing around the internet and then realising, wait – haven’t i posted about this before? and then actually googling my own blog to see if my suspicions are correct (i know, i know). so it went when i was looking through the work of Jenny Parsons, a well know local artist whose work i first shared back in 2010.
