When I first started working on this post I was torn with indecision on where to start! Mickalene Thomas is such a prolific artist. Her work includes collage, sculpture, paintings, drawings, films, and installations that explore themes of femininity and identity in bot...

Pattern layering is a technique that always fills me with awe. Whether it's clothing or artwork, I'm always amazed by people who can mix patterns and colors in a way that seems so effortlessly cool. Today's contributor, Russian-born artist Sasha Ignatiadou, is one of t...

Today, I'm so excited to share the work of embroidery artist Chloe Gordano! I first discovered Chloe's work about four years ago and I continue to be inspired and awed by her work. Each piece is almost too beautiful for words. The way she combines different thread colo...
