etsy: jane heller photography

I love this photo from photographer and Etsy seller Jane Heller. Jane is inspired by the nuances of everyday life, the small details that go unnoticed, light and shadow, humor and sadness and pretty much everything in between. You can purchase Jane’s beautiful photos from her Etsy shop.

summer days

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. It was a beautiful weekend here in The Netherlands with lots of sunshine. We haven’t had a great summer here so these these summer days were very welcome.

I don’t want the summer to end but soon autumn will be here and then winter will arrive. But today it is still summer and I am in the mood for sunny photos. The photographer of these gorgeous shots is Richard Foulser.

so yeun lee

I love the paintings of So Yeun Lee!. This talented artist was born in South Korea in 1971 but is now living and working in Dusseldorf, Germany. Her paintings are mainly self-portraits. According to So Yeun Lee, she gets to know herself better by creating self-portraits.

So Yeun Lee’s work can be admired at Gallery Conrads in Dusseldorf, Germany.

New at the Beholder, an online gallery featuring the works of emerging artists from the U.S. and Canadais, the beautiful work of Klea McKenna. Klea is a San Francisco artist whose career is definitely one to watch. Featured is work from her series Hollow Mountain and other Stories, which draws on the imagery of fiction; short stories, folktales and local gossip.

Klea McKenna was raised in the bohemian subcultures of rural northern California and Hawaii. She has studied art at CCA, UCLA, UC Santa Cruz, and Florence Art Institute. The work in this series, Hollow Mountain and other Stories, draws on the imagery of fiction; short stories, folktales and local gossip. Her photographs explore ideas of contemporary mythology and seek to discover the aesthetics of these familiar American narratives. Klea’s work has been published and exhibited nationally. She currently lives in San Francisco and is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree at California College of the Arts.
