Painting & social media: 5 artists to know


As an enthusiast of visual art, I’m a great fan of Instagram and Pinterest, where I spend a lot of time to go through and discover artists and art. I’ve gathered in this article 5 of my favourite painters, all discovered on social media. They work on acrylic, oil or watercolour and promote their work through the web.

I hope you will appreciate their work as much as I do!

Jen Garrido

Jen Garrido is one of the first artist I’ve discovered on the web. I immediately felt in admiration in front of her canvas.

Her field? Wildflowers painted in an abstract and colourful style. She uses mixed painting techniques to produce her abstract compositions inspired by nature. Her style intrigues and captures. My dream would be to have one of her original paint on my wall.

She also owns a brand of textile: JennyPenny Wood.

Emily Jeffords

Emily Jeffords, Instagram enthusiast, uses oil painting and watercolour to create her wonderful canvas.

Her field? Natural landscapes focusing on colourful end of days’ skies. She also paints watercolour abstract forms inspired by shadows’ leaves. She mixes techniques and paints in her abstract artworks. Her favourite colour is blue which we can find in almost all of her canvas.

Emily Jeffords steadily organizes creative retreats in France or elsewhere in Europe. The next one will take place in Barcelona.

Juliann Lacon

Juliann is a young abstract art artist. She lives in Houston in Texas.

Her field? A colour palette exclusively pastel. She uses a lot the technique of painting with a palette knife and adds some touches of gold and silver. Her colour palette adds lot of softness to her canvas, which I particularly like.

Her field? A riot of bright colours on very large canvas. She only paints with oil and she is inspired by the wild and butterfly wings! Her unique style gives to her creations the look of a fantastic world.
