 The Ways of Walls and Words 

Tran Nguyen was born in Vietnam, but raised in the United States and graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design. She works with color pencil and thin glazes of acrylic on paper. Nguyen is fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a psycho-therapeutic support vehicle, exploring the mind's landscape. The colors and textures she creates is beautiful, soft and calming. Some of my favorites are above. They have a classic yet modern feel which, especially the first one.

Sarah Bagshaw's patterns are quickly becoming a favorite. My eye was immediately drawn to these two prints. Some of Sarah's designs are reminiscent of previous Marni patterns. Bagshaw is a surface pattern designer based in the UK. She uses a combination of drawing, painting and photoshop to create such vibrant pieces. These patterns are begging to be incorporated in clothes and home accessories.
