We love these cut paper illustrations created by Russian Federation-based illustrator and animator, Margaret Scrinkl. Small leaves, blossoms and other natural elements form the basis of her work cutting all of the details by hands, sometime looking like jewelry work. More of her work can be found on her website, Behance, Facebook and Instagram. A few of her pieces are available for purchase here in her Etsy shop.

Scottish printmaker Bryan Angus has been making prints since 2012. The visual artist is based in Banff on the north Aberdeenshire coast – otherwise known as the Banffshire Coast. He has been making prints since 2012 and has found what feels like an entire world of expression in two colors. His inspiration stems from the beauty of the land and the drama of the landscape where he resides. On an interview with Jackson’s Art he says this about linocutting and inspiration:
“It (Linocutting) works very well with the graphic nature of the pictures I make and my drawing skills; I enjoy the carving process, the craft skill adds a fascinating dimension to the making of an image and is very therapeutic to do; lastly, the nature of multiples means my work can be seen further and owned by more people.”
“I’m inspired by the coast where I live, the drama of the land and sea meeting. But the common themes in my work are the character of architecture, the atmosphere of weather and different light conditions and the dynamic spaces we make around buildings.”

Suzanne Sullivan is an Oregon-born ceramist now living and working in Brooklyn where she creates textile, jewelry, pottery, and ceramics. We love her ceramic pieces with its rough surfaces and contrasting geometric patterns. On The Star Whisperer she relates this about herself:
“I like the idea of the artist as a kind of design factory, prepared to tackle all kinds of issues, whether they be extraordinary or mundane.”
“I like the things in our every day world that are not mass-produced, things that have fingerprints on them. At home, I collect twigs and sticks and nests, special rocks, pieces of small nothings from the natural world, and a lot of times, my ceramics become vessels for these things.”
