girl crush.

sigh – i love this artist, and every single thing that she chooses to paint – and, i’ll bet that you guys are going to have a girl crush on her too! ready?

toronto based holly farrell is one of my favorite artists – ever! a few months after i wrote about her for the first time, i was lucky enough to meet her in person. not only is she insanely talented, she is also soooo sweet! don’t you love it when that happens!? anyway, it’s very easy to have an art crush on her, thanks to her vintage subject matter, her muted color choices, her unbelievable painting skills, and of course, her just-mentioned sweetness! Have a look:

gah! so lovely! i have so many favorite pieces that it took me forever to decide which one to start the post with, but i knew exactly how to finish things off. this may very well be my latest “holly farrell” fave!

love that cozy little hat! oh, and one more little tidbit to share with you – i’m thrilled to say that i’m curating a group show this spring (details to come soon!) and holly is one of the artists! so excited! i’ll keep you posted – until then, i’ll see you back her in two weeks ~ the jealous curator xo

  1. oh my gosh, i love her work! i *knew* she had to be canadian, based on her subject matter!
    i’d never heard of her and i really hope she’ll show again locally. thank you!

  2. I thought they were photographs too! She is immensely talented. I would love to be able to buy one, or at least oogle at them in person. It looks like she has several for sale or on display at art galleries all over the country, even in Austin! Thanks for posting about her!

  3. These are so pretty and fanTABulous!! Thank you so much for the introduction to her work. So now I just HAVE to feature her on Artsy Forager, with a credit to you, of course, dear JC! ;-)
