Starting things off is Anne M. Bentley's arresting image above. "I just discovered drawing on my iPad a little over a year ago," she writes. "For an impatient person (me), the immediacy of drawing digitally is GREAT!" Follow Anne on Instagram to see what she creates next.

Paper Cut Calligraphy 
by John Ed De Vera 

I coined the term 'paper cut calligraphy' to capture both my love for cutting paper and my newly-discovered liking for calligraphy. 

Elemental Art Jewelry
by Rachel M Post 

I create one of a kind custom jewelry. From the cut and polish of the stone, to the story that I capture using raw metal.

What do you make? 
I paint, mainly in acrylic but also watercolour, gouache, marker and sometimes a combination of those. I paint mainly whimsical, fun, colourful scenes, things that make me and the people that see them happy. I paint anything from medium/large canvases to tiny 4x4 inch wood panels. I do have a love for mini paintings and they are becoming my favourite ones to paint lately.

They are made for hanging on people’s walls—to make them smile when they see them. They're meant for people whom are not scared of decorating with really bright colours!

People know me for my combination of colours, the little quirky houses I paint often—and the circles, dots and the little doodles that always seem to fill out the solid colour areas in my paintings.
What is your workspace like?
I just very recently moved from a corner between the kitchen and the living room to my very own room in the little beach box where I live with my husband. It’s small, about 11 by 9 foot, but I love it, I love it, I love it. It’s painted in a not too bright (not too bright for me anyways, probably very bright for the average person) lime green and it’s just so refreshing and inspiring.

I have a desk for my computer where I take care of the “business” side of things and work on pattern design (just learning at the moment), then another pretty wide desk for painting, a wooden easel for large canvases and an extra table to lay things down to dry. I have millions of drawers and baskets, since I love to have my space very organized. I also have two doors that open to our deck, which is great because visitors can come see my work directly in my art room without having to go through the house.

I sell my work online (on Etsy and my own website), at local galleries and local art fairs.
