I’ve been on a mad search for artists recently, especially illustrators working in pencil or paint. The work of Finnish artist Anna Emilia Laitinen caught my eye, and soon I found myself visiting her site every day to gaze at these paintings again and again. My favorite pieces are her mysterious architectural creations—the “Garden House” shown above, and the “Snow House” and “Forest Studio” shown below—in which leaves and trees meld directly into the structure of the buildings. There are so many small details to pore over that I could easily spend over an hour admiring each one. I hope you visit her site and check out more of her painting and drawings; you won’t be disappointed.
Do you have any favorite illustrators? Please share them with us in the comments; we’d love to learn about someone new!
