Artist Spotlight: Payton Cosell Turner

I have endeavored to blog every work day, so please excuse my absence yesterday.  It was a bad mommy day.  You know the kind.  When you want to crawl under the bed and hide in hopes of catching a few minutes of quiet and solitude.  I didn't crawl under the bed (don't worry Grandma).  Nor did I change out of my pajamas until after 5 PM.  But today is a new day and it's Wednesday so the week is more than half way over.  As if that wasn't enough, I have a wonderfully talented person to share with you.  Payton Cosell Turner.  Don't know where I heard about her, but I made a note to myself almost a year ago to blog about her and just found it today.  I hope it's not old news.

After doing a Google image search, I've remembered why I found her fab enough to take note:

Here's a close up of her absolutely fabulous wallpaper designs:

Wow.  That's all I can say.  Just wow.  I love this.  It is blindingly brilliant.  I love the very classic, formal patterns created from ordinary, and somewhat silly, objects.  

In collaboration with Brian Kaspr, Payton Turner creates stunning wallpaper for their Brooklyn-based company Flat Vernacular .  Here are some of my favorites:
