We’ve found another artist depicting snapshots of everyday life with cloth and thread. The creator is Tokyo-based embroidery artist Asami Maruyama. She graduated from Setsu Mode Seminar and in 2010 started designing, collaborating and exhibiting at overseas art fairs. Her ideas and motifs are chosen from stocks of photographs she takes on a daily basis. Her hand-embroidered work includes just the right amount of detail to give each piece a breath of its own.

There’s beauty in the mundane as can be seen in these paintings by Toronto-based artist Caitlyn Murphy. The award-winning artist graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design and has a degrees in both philosophy and illustration. Her still-life gouache paintings showcase a unique style of realism preferring overlooked, quiet moments as her subject matter and reducing them to their simplest forms. The artist has had solo and group exhibitions and completed an artist residency in Espoo, Finland.
