Aaron Apsley

Our interest in gardening has introduced us to the botanical watercolors of illustrator and Fine artist, Aaron Apsley. The artist graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Georgia and currently lives and works in New York City.  It is only fitting that the artist should describe his work:

“I’ve been painting and drawing my entire life, usually just observing and depicting things around me that I find interesting or beautiful. When I moved to New York, I was limited by the amount of workspace in my apartment so I decided to focus on working mostly in watercolors. I am working on an ongoing series of watercolor street scenes of New York, because I am so amazed by the great variety and scale of the architecture in the city. Inspired by a lifelong interest in botany, I have recently been concentrating on the field of botanical illustration. I began by painting my own houseplants from life and now I am always scouring the city for interesting tropical and desert plants to use as reference.” 

More of his work can be seen on his website, Behance, Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr.  Original work and prints can be purchased on his website and on Etsy,

Santiago Salvador Ascui

Love these colorful patterns of assembled figures and faces created by Chilean artist Santiago Salvador Ascui.  The figures are arranged in sequences with the focus on hues instead of the narrative.  The artist holds a Fine Arts degree and has exhibited widely in Chile and Europe.

You can view more of his work on his website, Facebook and Instagram.

Aline Brant

Brazilian photographer, Aline Brant, embellishes her portraitures with beautiful and delicate embroideries.  Brightly colored strands of flowers, leaves and vines enhances the somber-colored photos, creating a sensitive interpretation of light and dark.
