Happy Monday! I hope wherever you are today that you are enjoying yourself! It has finally cooled off here and is raining a bit. I love it!
For today's MOJO MONDAY post, I wanted to share a new favorite artist with you.. Yaz Raja. Yaz is a surface pattern designer living in the U.K. I found Yaz's work through Pinterest. I fell in love with her painterly, illustrated artwork. It just makes my heart sing! It's colorful, whimsical, yet elegant at the same time.
Once I found Yaz's artwork, I sent an email off to her to find out what kinds of medium she worked in and she was so sweet to email me back right away. Yaz works mostly in watercolor and gouache paints and I've found that most artists that I resonate with work in gouache. Mary Blair and Anne Keenan-Higgins also work in this medium. It is a cross between a watercolor and acrylic and I'm hoping to add more of it to my growing art supplies!
Here is a snapshot of Yaz's work as well as a link to her store at Society6. I want to order everything in her shoppe!
I would love to have these throw pillows with her beautiful florals for my sunroom!
I also love a series she has on her blog called "Pattern A Day". Here are just a few of the beautiful patterns she creates! The colors are amazing!
Hope you enjoyed this spotlight today!
