Illustrators and Paper Artists

Instagram has become one of our favorite go-tos for inspiration, sourcing, and trend spotting. It is our most used “virtual magazine”, fully customizable and virtually limitless in terms of the depth we can get into when we really want to research a product or lock down a design idea.  Never before have we felt the world so close to our fingertips. 

One of the most interesting aspects of Instagram is the access it gives us to local, national, and international artists. Artists we never would have found in local showrooms or online. We love finding new vendors, following their work, and cataloging images for future clients. Here is a roundup of some of our favorite botanical print and textile designers. We love the earthy femininity of the patterns and unexpected use of colors and techniques.
NINA PEARSE

Syndey based artist known for architectural cut out drawings and X-ACTO knife abstractions from leaves. Her work is so exact, so precise, it is a quiet reminder that perfection is always within reach if you work hard for it.

Boston based artist specializing in patterns and unique small painting. We feel Mia is one to watch and can’t wait to see her first line of fabric debut later this year in collaboration with Windham Fabrics!
