Hi, my name is Isla

I create art inspired by nature, the celestial, and the divine.

The Aurora Collection
is now available!

I'm working on something brand new, and I can't wait to show it to you. Inspired by architecture, gateways, and the aurora borealis, these ethereal periwinkle and lavender paintings are an absolute joy.

The Celestial Collection

This collection is about destiny, fate, and following divine guidance to find your path.

Here's the backstory:

 

Sometimes paintings don't turn out the way you want them to.

I had one of these unusable paintings sitting against the wall in my studio for a few weeks, but I just couldn’t bring myself to let it go. 

 

I cut small rectangles out of the canvas and created my first mini tapestries. They are like sisters - cut from the same canvas and scattered to the winds like stars. I think they're a beautiful mini representation of my larger works, and I hope you'll agree.

 

A lot of love and work went into each one. I released one set with my Celestial Collection last Fall, and another set will release with the Aurora Collection on October 1st!
