UnitedThread: Shop Inspiration

30 Mar

A while back I stumbled across one of the most enchanting owl illustrations I’d ever seen. (If anyone knows me, they know I’m a bit obsessed with owls) It was full of pattern and color and washes. Truly inspirational to as it’s the type of art I love to do. I even kept the image as my computer background for awhile. Sadly, I did know who the painter was or where to find more of their beautiful stuff. Until recently…

The paintings are work done by Michelle Morin, owner of UnitedThread. I love the use of watercolor and gouache in her work along with the boldness of the patterns. And the birds. Ah the use of nature is quite evident throughout her body of work. I had a hard time paring down to just a few images to share.

You can find many more examples of her work on her blog or purchase some in her shop. I think I’m gonna save up and get that owl one day.

Enjoy the weekend!
