Gestural Nudes by Gretchen Kelly

Pin It










Gretchen Kelly is top on my curated list of "MUST Collect" art. As a Tastemaker for Great.ly, Gretchen is always in my collections.  I can't get enough of Gretchen Kelly Art.  Her sketches; figurative and landscape are so dreamy and sought after. You may BUY here. 


Artist Statement:

I work in a variety of mediums and styles. Primarily, I paint figurative, landscape and flowers. My fashion and home decor background influence my work at times. I am inspired by the beauty of what is natural in my world and embellish it with my own personal touches of color, pattern and ornament. My work has spontaneity and whimsy. I try to capture the gestures and nuances of fleeting moments which are the details that bring life and beauty as I see it in my subject. Simplicity is the mark that I strive for.  - Gretchen Kelly




"I love to paint with watercolors. 
I am inspired by the beauty all around me 
in Mother Nature's landscape and the female form. 
Simplicity is what I strive for as I make order out of chaos when I paint."

Tastemaker Patti Friday Gathers a Lola Donoghue Art Collection for Great.ly

Pin It

Today I am sharing my love for Lola!

Discover her available artworks here in my curated collection for Great.ly.

Lola Donoghue is an Irish Artist. Imbued with a painterly, ethereal quality, her work is characterized by a predominantly white-on-white palette, layered with a mix of muted colors and splashes of bright neon. Her work is light and fresh and the compositions are a delicate balance of intricate linear forms and concentrated layers of colour.

Adrift in My Mind by Bri Land Reclaimed Wood Furniture + Wall Art

Pin It

It is so humbling to be selecting the best of the best from across the globe.  As a Tastemaker for Great.ly I see a lot of talent. Bri Land takes my breath away!  You may purchase her work HERE.
At Adrift In My Mind, you will find unique reclaimed wood wall art and table tops made from wood found around the Houston, TX area.
AIMM is run by Bri Land, a self-taught artist and woodworker. She started playing around with woodworking in 2013 when she decided to build a tabletop for her own home. It has been about two years now and this thing that started out as an itch she had to scratch has turned into something that she can’t not do. Creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind artwork has turned in to a very fulfilling full-time career.


Her process and style has evolved over the years. The pieces she now creates stem from a desire to create beautiful wall decor and table tops from discarded, forgotten wood. They are usually geometric in design and can be described as both rustic and modern.
I hope you enjoy her work as much as she enjoy creating it.
