Misato Suzuk

Misato Suzuk is a Japanese artist who currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Both her paintings and illustrations demonstrate delicate, organic lines combined with a neutral color palette.  Although her preferred mediums are two-dimensional, her line work successfully creates shapely, bulbous forms. Subtle accents of ink splotches grace her surfaces, and add to the the soft and muted mood of her abstractions. Suzuk’s tranquil work is fluid and beautiful, making it a pleasure to view. Check out some of our favorites below and visit her website to see the rest of her work.

Frances Russell

Frances Russell is a talented and extremely versatile artist, who is also a dear friend of mine. Like all writers for Florence and Millie, Frances attends the Savannah College of Art and Design. She is currently a junior, majoring in fibers and recently added a minor in printmaking. Her pieces are highly conceptualized, exploring and translating unconventional ideas. Frances’ abstracted works are not only distinctively stimulating and thought-provoking, but are also a visual pleasure.

Frances pays much attention to her mark making and meticulous line work. She is continually producing abundant amounts of work and showing more artistic growth with every piece. Make certain you take note of Frances, because she will surely become a staple in the art world. Visit her website to see additional work  and  follow her blog to read more in depth about her art and process.

 

Alison Worman

We’ve been infatuated with Alison Worman’s work for a while now and today we are finally going to share our secret treasure. Alison Worman is a fibers and book artist that recently graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art. Worman’s pieces communicate ideas of  “human relationships, longing and nurturing” in a youthful and enchanting approach. Her highly stylized work consistently conveys these messages in a pleasantly simplified way. Worman flourishes in creating dynamic energy and interaction between viewers, improving the lack of human relationships through her artwork. Below are some of our absolute favorites, we truly admire her concepts and portrayal of them through her personal aesthetic. Make sure you check out her website to see more of her inspiring work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kinfolk Magazine

Kinfolk, a guide for small gatherings, is a lovely treatise to a simpler way of life. It envelopes you in a world where people still bake cookies from scratch and use paper maps. This printed magazine is filled with beautiful photography and insightful articles focused on the topic of gathering together with both friends and strangers alike. It includes interviews with noted artists, reviews of small shops, recipes for delicious food, and thoughts on getting back to our roots. It also includes the work of two photographers that we have featured on Florence & Millie, Leo Patrone and Tec Petaja! You can watch a beautiful video on their philosophy here. Though it may occasionally get a bit hipster, we absolutely love this magazine.

Julie Massy

We are really digging illustrations by Julie Massy today. Being an illustrator, Massy creates sharp and intricate line work within her pieces. Her faintly colored illustrations have similar qualities to photogravures, with the extra grain, tainted backgrounds, and washy shades of black. Massy’s work is focused on portraits that  carry graceful, audacious, and whimsy moods. Below are some of our favorite compositions done by Massy. Make sure you check out her website to see more of her work.

Susan Benarcik

While living in the hustle and bustle of New York City, Susan Benarcik makes her living creating installation art and surface designs. She focuses her art making in on the natural world, resulting in highly tactile work made from a variety of papers. Benarcik’s bulbous forms are created through manipulation of her material, with twisting, wrapping and stacking. She explores the third-dimension, evoking curiosity and interaction of space between her art and viewers. See a preview of her work below, but be sure to visit her website to see more of her creations.

Diana Behl

Diana Behl is a mixed media collage artist who resides and teaches in South Dakota. Her work reflects and showcases personal experience through memories, metaphors, and narratives. These themes are illustrated through her combination of delicate lines and blots of saturated colors. Although her work is solely two dimensional, she constructs layers of believable facades of depth and dimension in all of her works. Behl carefully titles her series and pieces, which are just as intriguing and poetic as her artwork. Have the experience of viewing Behl’s figurative prints and stay up to date on her exhibitions by visiting her website here.

 

 

Bryan Nash Gill

Bryan Nash Gill is an artist from Connecticut who makes these amazingly beautiful prints from the patterns of trees. Using a relief printing technique, Bryan explores the beauty of the lines and textures of various fallen logs. His use of color and composition is fascinating and his printing technique is quite impressive. Take a look at some of our favorites, and then head to his website to see more of his work!
