Five Female Artists to Follow on Instagram

When I'm feeling uninspired these days I often take an instagram break to see what all of my favorite artists are working on. Instagram has become the place to check out progress photos of artists creating their current master pieces. I love seeing what's on the easel or developing in their sketchbooks and it's a nice reminder that every artist has a slightly different creative process. 

Here are my five favorite female Instagram Artists!

Katy is a young british artist who works mostly with oils. I  love her  colour pallet and the looseness of her compositions. Her animals seem to be floating in my dreams....or something like that! Her instagram feed often features the current painting on her easel.

Kelly is my watercolour idol. Her work is detailed and interesting but not too real or literal. Her control over her medium is masterful and her instagram feed is full of videos and progress photos.

Caitlin's work is the perfect mix of illustration and fine art, with strong line work and beautiful animal themed compositions. 

 This watercolour artist has mastered the skill of making drips and splatters look perfectly placed. Her work is loose and emotional and I am a big fan!

Jana Birk paints big beautiful oil paintings that deal with innocence, youth and coming of age themes. Her work is sensual and sexually suggestive in a very interesting way. I hope that one day I will have the honor of viewing her art in person!

These artists keep my intsagram feed full of art and their inspiring processes!
