Marvel at these phantasmagorical paintings by Rouble Rust, a self taught artist with a passion for painting. For inspiration, Rust dips her paintbrush into her experiences, emotions and dreams, and conjures up works that are a hypnotizing blend of fantastical imagery and dark imagination. She says that she loves creating “fantasy fictional characters and storytelling images,” but all of which are still steeped in reality.

Rust adds that she is comfortable painting in both traditional (acrylics, gouache, watercolors, oils and more) as well as digital mediums. She has also been trained in graphic design.

Striking. That was the first word which popped into my mind when I first laid my eyes on illustrator and photographer Sarah Rosado’s beautiful photographs. Full of whimsical playfulness with an underlying current of vibrant sensuality, her images look distinctive and fresh. Whether it is discovering familiar shapes in clouds, or uncovering one-eyed monsters hiding in foliage, Rosado seems to take great delight in finding beauty in the mundane.

Snip from her bio:

Inspired by her aunt and uncle, both artists in their respect, Sarah found a style that was unique to her. With art, running through her veins, it was inevitable to Sarah to take what loved and immerse herself in it.
