Start 2020 Feeling Inspired by Our Favourite Female Illustrators on Instagram
Of the countless reasons we turn to Instagram for inspiration, one of them is discovering new and upcoming artists to follow. The app makes it easier than ever to stumble upon the works of some of the most talented creatives and peruse their portfolio at a glance while quickly ascertaining their style and chosen subject matter. We can't get enough of the female illustrators on this list who have recently found their way into our following list for good reason. From geometric and colourful to monochrome and organic, get ready to fill your feed with the inspiring works of these ladies.
Emma Currie (@emmaacurrie)
We are truly obsessed with this talented painter. Emma's works tread the line between geometric and fluid so beautifully and have us mesmerised every time one of her posts pops up on our feed. Her Insta is filled with female forms in a striking combination of warm and cool tones and we're hoping one of them is wrapped under the tree for us.Silas Studio (@silasstudio)
Sarah Jane is a Melbourne-based artist and designer whose simplistic style caught our eye instantly and we haven't stopped thinking about it since. Curvy bodies and emotive faces fill her Insta gallery in tones of white, brown and black.Leonie Psillis (@theheraseries)
The Hera Series by Leonie Psillis is a fantastic art project that celebrates female empowerment and self-love. Her work features themes of sensual female forms in diverse shapes and sizes and concepts around beauty, love and loss.Stacey Rees (@staceyreesartist)
Stacey's modern take on traditional portraiture is playful and like nothing else we've seen recently. Her avant-garde style is full of light and shade and colours that are carefully chosen to reflect the inner workings of her subjects.
Octavia Tomyn (@octavia_tomyn_art)
With a successful fashion career spanning over a decade, it's safe to say that Octavia is a multi-talented creative. We're in awe of her ability to drill down the essence of the intimate relationships between people with just the use of a singular, uninterrupted line.
Evi O (@evi_o)
Evi's distinctive design aesthetic is easy to spot amongst a crowd—bold, colourful and graphic. It's no surprise that her work is often used to accompany book releases and posters with an innate ability to portray a concept with just a few strategic shapes and colours.
Alexandria Park (@ajpstudio_)
Alexandria is a favourite of ours who regularly features in our photoshoots and on our own gram. Her aesthetic is fresh and light, with layers and texture that make you want to get up close and admire the details. If she's not already, this Sydney-based artist deserves to be on your follow list.
Kit Agar (@kitagar)
Hailing from the UK, Kit's pastel print collection includes nudes and figures, faces and abstract creations with a feminine flair and minimalist aesthetic. We're already dreaming of our dream gallery wall with a few of Kit's painted beauties.
Jessica Yolanda Kaye (@jessicayolandakaye)
Jessica is an Australian living in London with a beautifully refined body of work that includes line drawings created using one continuous line in deep blue and burgundy shades. We particularly love her new works composed on French fine linen.
