Gunvor Nervold Antonsen

Gunvor Nervold Antonsen lives and works in Rollag and Oslo, Norway. The 42-year-old artist weaves together fabric, clay, plaster, wood, paint, pencil, and found objects into sprawling installations that swallow the viewer whole. The artwork spills out from its container (even when viewed from a computer screen), as if it were plucked straight from the artist's hands and inserted directly into the viewer's imagination—where it lives on and on. 

Harriet Lee Merrion

Harriet Lee Merrion's pastels will woo you into submission. Her delicate line work will leave you dumbstruck. But Harriet's subject matter will jolt you awake and send you scurrying to make art of your own.

Courtney Mattison

Courtney Mattison is an artist and ocean advocate working to inspire policy makers and the public to conserve our changing seas. Our Changing Seas III is the third in Courtney's series of large-scale ceramic coral reef installations. Arthur Evans documented her important work beautifully, so sit back, lose yourself, and let's all swim in the sea of Courtney's creations together.

Sophia Foster-Dimino

Sophia Foster-Dimino is an illustrator & cartoonist living and working in San Francisco. She used to work at google. Now she works for our hearts (and publishers across the country). The girl is funny. The girl is deep. The girl is our favorite kind of artist, capturing a collection of seemingly flip, small moments we recognize instantly and want to burn into our memories forever.

Greta Kotz

Line, line, line, line, line. We adore the linework of Greta Kotz. Her ecosystems of emotion are slowly built—stroke after stroke, after stroke of pastel, gouache, and acrylic. Each stroke weaves a net of story.

Elke Foltz

Elke Foltz is a french illustrator with a german name. Lose yourself in the swirl of her ever-detailed work. Watch as she sews together beauty, darkness, and dysfunction.

Rosemary Valero-O'Connell

Rosemary currently resides in Minneapolis, MN. She spent most of her childhood in Zaragoza, Spain. As a nervous child, her father would often tell her, "A por ellos, que son pocos y cobardes," which loosely translates to, "Go get 'em, for they are few and they are all cowards."

Monica Ramos

Feeling anxious today? Monica Ramos has your back. You need a dose of her itty bitty people and patterns galore! Ramos packs life and emotion into every single human body present in her work.  The result: it makes us want to feel all our feelings and still eat those feelings too. 

Ashley Ronning

Ashley makes her living in set dressing and prop making. This makes sense. She sure knows how to set a stage on paper. Her atmospheric still life drawings come alive with wit and weirdness.

Leslie Guillochon

You need to know the drawings of Paris-based Leslie Guillochon. She spends her days teaching art to children. Her nights are filled with dreams of otherworldly ladies, which she brings to life through her simple paper and trusty graphite pencils.

Jen Bartel

Jen Bartel's work is heavily influenced by the media '90s kids consumed during their childhood. You'll want to break out your old Lisa Frank trapper keeper and collect every single one of her prints.

Skip Hursh

Skip Hursh's gifs are some of the finest on planet earth. His looping, jumping, diving abstract shapes will boggle your little brain. He is an artist for our time, welcoming the internet as one giant gallery. The internet's very own Kandinsky.


We are less than half way through 2016 and the Austin-based artist Xochi Solis has already amassed a giant body of work. Lucky for us. But still, we are left wanting more! We are obsessed with the pools of paint (gouache, house, acrylic, and spray) frozen together with acetate, colored paper, naturally dyed paper, and found images. The following concoctions will mesmerize you. 

Abbey Lossing

Not only does Abbey Lossing's artwork move, it moves our little hearts. In her simple shapes and subtle animation we see a world many young women will recognize—we sure see ourselves. Abbey is an illustrator and designer residing in New York City, and is currently a Junior Art Director at BuzzFeed. 

A Horse of a Different Color

Together, Allegra Lockstadtand Anna Lee have created a collection of hats and images inspired by the past winners of the Kentucky Derby. They are celebrating the Tripple Crown, a top achievement in horse racing that is extraordinarily difficult to obtain, at times leaving decades of time between winners.
