Isabella Di Sclafani

Isabella Di Sclafani-1-Design Crush


Montreal-based painter Isabella Di Sclafani started out painting huge nudes on the daily, but as of late has moved on to faces and clay sculptures. Her style translates well to both through the saturated acrylics, gouaches, and inks used on smooth surfaces such as panel boards and gessoed wood. Check out her shop for even more.

My paintings are a particular hybrid of expressionism, naïve art, illustration, outsider art and folk art all rolled into one. For inspiration, I rely on my archived collection of magazine clippings, historical portraits, vintage and family photographs, as well as my own photos taken on trips and daily walking excursions around the city. My portraits and clay figurines tend to veer off into slightly distortional anatomical proportions, yet still retain the qualities necessary to convey an emotion.

Two photographers from different worlds and cultures with different visions somehow managed to join forces in the creation of Pampa. Together they bridge the gap between Argentina and Australia, exploring the finest handwoven rugs and cushions made by incredibly talented artisans. I’ll take one of everything, please.

Maria Gil Ulldemolins

Maria Gil Ulldemolins-1-Design Crush


I have a very massive artist crush on Belgium’s Maria Gil Ulldemolins. Like, huge. Everything about her paintings resonate with me, and it was only after reading more about her that I began to understand why. Maria’s paintings are a very process-oriented practice that she views as an extension of her love of meditation. Themes explored include embracing mistakes, letting go, flow, compassion, control, variations, and time. Oh, so that’s why.
