If I remember correctly, I found Thaneeya McArdle recently when I was looking for watercolor tutorials and was wowed by her colorful artwork. They basically punched me in the face.
Ms. McArdle grew up all over the world and incorporates those influences in her work. She makes engaging abstract art, coloring books for you to color (whoo hoo!), photorealistic art, and most interesting to me, composite realism.
She has a Zazzle store, so you can get cool stuff like pillows, laptop sleeves, and even ties with her artwork on it. Check it out!
