Artists you ought to follow

To prepare for new paint, I just got done taking down every single thing hanging on my walls, and man, a house doesn’t feel like home without art. Here are a few artists I’m loving (and following) lately:

Janet Hill: This artist’s got whimsy in spades. Every single original painting or print tells a story and inspires the imagination. Occasionally she’ll post originals on her Etsy site and promote them on Instagram, but they sell in minutes, and the list price (when I’ve been able to catch it) is $750. If you don’t have the speed to beat out other buyers or if you don’t have that kind of cash for an 12 X 16 original, take a look at her reasonably priced prints. Her holiday stuff is magical, and the non-holiday work is beautiful, happy, and unique too. Follow her on Instagram at @janethillstudio.

Lynne Millar: I am obsessed with florals on black backgrounds, and Millar’s paintings are some of the best I’ve run across—the canvases are so rich in color and texture. She posts her work here, and her pieces come in a wide range of sizes. Keep an eye on her recent work by following @artbylynnemillar on Instagram.

Brian Kershisnik: I love the folk-artsy feel of the subjects in Kershisnik’s paintings, and you can shop his work here. Kershisnik was recently recognized as one of Utah’s 15 most influential artists. For those of you who like his work and live in east Idaho, he’s presenting a seminar March 9 in the Smith Building (Room 240) on BYU-Idaho’s campus. Follow him on IG at @briankershisnik. •
