Sarah Janece Garcia’s oil paintings: smooth movement and hyper nature

I used to love painting. I stopped after I left for uni due to a lack of space and time, and those restraints have followed me into gradhood; but I suppose there’s always a reason not to do something until you do it.

Artist Sian Storey: beautiful birds and a modern Japanese aesthetic

I’m a serial scroller, and when I make that laborious commute, I trawl through Instagram like mad.
