Deep Sea Creatures By Jess Switaj

Featured Valentine’s Market Vendor Jess Switaj is inspired by her love of creatures from the depths of the seas.

I’ve drawn a good deal of the inspiration for my designs from the ocean and the creatures that live in it. There are so many amazing and beautiful things that live in the sea! They are incredible in their variety, the sheer numbers of them that there are, and particularly in their exquisite colorations. Possibly the only thing as breathtaking as the denizens of the deep is the cosmos. A lot of my work is very graphic and literal (printed images) but for my pieces which are not, I draw a lot of inspiration from the color patterns and combinations that these animals are all fitted with by nature.

Snapdragon’s Mexican Folk Inspired Creations

Milagro Frida by Snapdragon

If you’re into bold colors, intricate hand made creations and Frida Kahlo (who isn’t?) – then you’re going to love Snapdragon, a featured Valentine’s Market vendor. Shop owner Nina Shope tells us why she is all about Mexican Folk Art:

My work is strongly influenced by my passion for Mexican folk art, from beading to embroidery, paper mache to metalwork, painting to textiles.  I feel a great affinity for the bold, rich colors; the playful and somewhat tortured iconography of saints, sirens, skeletons, devils; and the evocative paintings (and photographs) of artists like Frida Kahlo.   Continue reading
