We recently stumbled upon a water-color artist on Instagram and now stalk her account daily! Her name is Jessica Weymouth (@jessweymouth_) and she lives in Long Beach, California. Her illustrations vary from plants, insects, shapes to moons. “Hand painted watercolor art pieces to promote healing, growth, love, and good vibes.” We dare you to check her stuff out and try not to fall in love. @jessweymouth_ @space15twenty #UOaroundyou

John Foster is a design object artist based in Minneapolis, MN. He works with various materials such as quartz, acrylics, glass, gold, and glitter. He’s a wizard at creating substrates which are cut into multidimensional tiles that are then polished, and welded together to create dreamy objects. Our favorite is his hand-crafted interstellar-sparkle table (recently commissioned by producer and DJ; ZEDD). John describes his art as experimental. “The objects I make bring the viewer into the moment, with visceral gasps and heart skipping opulence. The colors are rich, the sunlit moments are priceless.” he say's. John draws inspiration for his art from his love of music, and constantly seeking patterns. “Sounds are some of the most beautiful shapes you can't see, but feel.” he say’s. Currently, John is working on accessory design in addition to his objects. A preview is live on his site. Below are some of our faves.

As a fashion forecaster she predicts the colors, fabrics and styles that will be presented on the runway and in stores for the upcoming seasons.

Tell me a little about what you do…
I am a painter and an interdisciplinary artist. Every day i work with mediums including painting, drawing, writing, photography, textile and publishing . I also run the online shop project Bonjour Supermarket (www.bonjoursupermarket.com), for which i design and produce exclusive textile pieces. I recently had a solo show and positive participative piece in Tokyo and some of my artworks are part of a current group show at the Brunei Gallery in London. I also happen to sometime be working as a consultant and art director.
You have an incredible eye for beautiful things. What inspires your aesthetic?
Thank you very much for the compliment!
Mostly my journeys, i love traveling. I am fascinated and fond of learning about traditional objects, textiles and art, i believe these also inspire my aesthetic. Simple, Quality, Elegant and Fun, i would say those are the four by which I go.
What are five things you cannot live without?
I wouldn't say live without but just five objects i like having with me:
-An old photobooth of my father and myself
-A Mala my fiancé Jatinder gave me when we met
-The book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura
