We love folk art but have neglected posting creative talents so today we introduce Romanian illustrator Madalina Andronic, who draws inspiration from traditional fairy tales and Slavic folklore. The illustrations of the Bucharest-based artist is rich in detail, bright colors and patterns. She tells us a little bit about herself on an interview with Krishka-Studio:
“I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, so I guess the art was a sure thing for me. But as a child, I would flirt with other artistic directions too, like dancing or singing or theatre, so there must have been times when “ballerina” or “pop singer” trumped “painter”. However, with time, things cleared up and I decided to give my pencils and papers their rightful place in my heart. Rest assured, I was never a ‘next big thing’ for the science world :)”
You can see more of her work on her website, Facebook, Instagram and Behance.

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows: ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’
and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’
