I studied art history at uni, I adore exhibitions and recently I've been super inspired by all things art. I just finished reading Seven Days in the Art World by Sarah Thornton. It's a brilliant book and an amazing insight into the art world, and it made me want to go to art school immediately! That probably won't happen any time soon, so in the meantime pinterest is a fantastic way of discovering new and inspiring artists...
1 | Satsuki shibuya's photo-synthesis series is seriously beautiful - I love following her work on her instagram feed.
2 | I've been a huge fan of Katy Smail's paintings for a while now, and her entire portfolio is so super gorgeous and fun.
3 | Wonderful, bright and fun paintings, (and an incredibly inspiring interview) by Ken Done. My Mum has a gorgeous painting by him at home and it is happiness.
4 | I saw the Matisse exhibition at the Tate Modern at the start of September - it was mesmerising and so super inspiring, it made me want to get my papers and paint out straight away! I adored the colours and composition in this piece especially.
5 | I completely adore Jenny Prinn's paintings. Her colour palettes are the best.
6 | Britt Bass is an artist I discovered through pinterest. The colours and compositions in her paintings are swoon perfection and I bloody love them. Also, her iPhone cases are ace.
