Berkeley artist Lena Wolff's work is a feminist take on quilts and other American handicrafts. She uses humble materials: paper, collage, even basic pine. The results are flattened out, minimalized—with all the stark, homespun beauty of the originals.

These paintings by Jenny Andrews-Anderson are just plain pretty, nothing more or less than that. I love that she treats paper sort of preciously—that is, she paints on it. (Some of these are painted on canvas as well.) Her blog is awfully sassy too.

While sourcing vintage concert posters for a client, I came across these faux-vintage prints on Etsy. The Stereo Typist is a British artist with impeccable taste in music. I'm into his midcentury style and bold palettes—not to mention the bands and musicians he's chosen.

But Australian Jane Reiseger's prints stand out for their excellent composition as well as their sweetness. There's something clean and pure and just right about them.
