Today feels like a day for pretty things. I’m clocking out mentally for the day and just need to be surrounded by pretty art. So here goes another round of Design Crush, where I share amazing artists and designers and their work.
I came across the illustration work of Liek Van Der Vorst on a blog, though I can’t remember which. She is an amazing artist from the Netherlands. I adventured over to her web site and she has an cat gif at the top that wags its tail oh so subtly as you arrive. Sold. Be my friend. Her nature and still life pieces are what originally drew me to her work. The more I saw, the more drawn towards her portraits and people I was. Her work is often very quirky and playful. I don’t know if people can be considered still life or not, but she has a way of painting and illustrating that makes everything seem so natural. The woman working in the garden looks as though she was born there and a part of the garden itself. I love it. These are the kinds of pieces you want hanging in your home.
She sells her beautiful work online and at lots of retailers around the world. Go see! You can also check her out on Facebook and Instagram! If you like this post go check out my other Design Crush posts!
