Trish Grantham

I wanted to share some images of Trish Grantham's work today with all you lucky people out there. I was first drawn to her Russian Nesting Dolls (see the last two images), but love her paintings as well. Her work is an interesting combination of different media, mostly painting and collage; I especially love the pieces that use wood panels as the ground. She creates imaginative, illustratively rendered scenes that I find both intriguing and beautiful. You can check out some more of her work on her website and on Etsy. If you still can't get enough, she has images of her work on Flickr too.
