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.

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.







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.



Franz West

Just a few days ago, the artist, Franz West, passed away. So today, we will take a glimpse and celebrate the range of work he created in his 65 years of life. While West worked in both two and three dimensions, he is primarily recognized for his work as a sculptor. He successfully established a personal characteristic to his prodigious plaster sculptures. Their rumpled appearance provide a delightfully textural viewing experience. West creates warped, abstracted and figurative forms that rise above and compliment the enthralling surface details. His work is displayed in museums around the world, so the opportunity to see his brilliant work is still available.

Here are some of our favorite works by West
