This week, I found a few more artists for my must-have list.
Susana Parada of Parada Creations has a store full of whimsically delightful prints. I really like how she treats the feel-good sayings so often featured in her work. Her font choices are fresh and unique and really make the prints pop. She has a lot of variety in her store, so I am sure you will find something you love.

I just adore J.C. Spock’s take on mixed-media. Her pieces are feminine and heartfelt without being schmaltzy. They are beautifully layered and complicated, much like we all are. Her work crosses over easily into note cards, journals and postcards – all available in the store.

There is something provocative and tantalizing in the woman’s eyes in this piece by Claire Mojher. Like she is just daring you to be shocked by her. I love it. All of Mojher’s work has this same sense of story and drama. Her pieces leave you wondering about the subject's back story. So intriguing.
|Eliminating Rivals by Clair Mojher - $20|
Elle Moss is going to get me in trouble with my husband. I have already bookmarked several of her pieces and forwarded to him as future purchases. This particular piece really caught my eye. I love the fluidity and the almost surreal serenity of it. It is no wonder her work is used often by fashion magazines – it is so beautiful composed and her lighting is wonderful. She has fast become one of my favorite photographers.

You may have seen the work of Maia Chavez Larkin in a gallery or your favorite magazine before. She is a well-known children’s fashion illustrator and her work has been published all over the globe. Her work is still intimate and personal, though and I was totally drawn in by this piece. All of her work has an incredible level of detail and craftsmanship that really denotes Chavez Larkin as a master of her field.
