10 Female Artists That Are Killin' It

I am all about women supporting & encouraging other women. About celebrating each other's passions and achievements rather than competing aggressively or being catty. 

So today I want to celebrate some of my favourite female artists who are just doing an amazing job doing them, and creating some beautiful art.

I am so thankful for Instagram because that is how I found most of these amazing women. Keep up the awesome work ladies!

Without further ado, let's go!!

 

1. Phoebe Taylor

I'm lucky because this cool chick is my cousin. She is super fun and extremely talented. She went to OCAD for printmaking (hence her moniker 'Phoebe Taylor Printcess'), but she uses many mediums to create her unique pieces. You can see more of her stuff here!

Her use of various shades of pinks and neutrals is so dreamy & celestial. I have a thing for the moon so this stuff is right up my alley. More of her work can be seen here!

5. Justina Blakeney

Justina is a designer and artist known for coining the phrase 'Jungalow', which is a style that embodies wild designs and bright colours, but is also cozy and homey. You can check out more of her stuff here!

 This is a photo I took in my bathroom of her painting 'Shower Goals'. When I saw it I knew I needed to buy it!

10. Vanja Vukelic

I've followed this artist on Instagram for a long time now, and every time she posts a new piece I get so excited. Her work is full of nature, and magic, and love. Some people purchase tattoo tickets from her so they can permanently have her art on their bodies. What a terrific idea! You can see more of her art here!
