This weeks Feature is Portland (US) based Anna Magruder. I first came across her art whilst visiting her Etsy shop. Wow. Her images are so life-like, yet there is always something distinctly odd about them. This is what she says on her website:
“In 2009, I decided to take a leap of faith and leave the routine and security of my design business to focus on what’s become my passion—oil painting and illustration. My favorite subjects are people and animals and whatever lies between. Drifting between realism and surrealism, I love recreating vintage America, reimagining the lives and stories of strong women, capturing the dormant kookiness or sweet serenity of a local cat, or just exploring the emotional color of faces in the crowd.”
These are some of my favorites from her Etsy shop: embrace, Alexandria, Boy & Paper, Sentinel and How To Fully Be Alive.
Have a good weekend everyone!
