How amazing it must be to be able to pluck an image from your imagination and recreate it on a page? I admire artists like today’s Instagrammer Elise Hurst. She captures a world of anthropomorphic animals, fierce females and other fantastical beasts.

Snail mail lovers, the Dear You Project’s Instagram feed will fill you with inspiration and perhaps a little mail envy too. Created by the very talented Beatrice (who lives in a small town in Italy), it’s a visual diary of incoming and outgoing mail as well as requests for pen pals. Paper nerds will love this feed!

I have saved so many images from The Workspace Stylist’s Instagram feed. I just can’t get enough of the clean and pristine spaces, clutter-free desks and carefully ordered tchotchkes. I aspire to have a nice office but for now I’m fine with looking at other peoples.

If you’re a fan of snail mail you’re going to love Amanda’s (from Writing a Letter) Instagram feed. All the pictures of pretty, decorated mail inspires me to catch up on my letter writing. Are you a fan of letter writing too?

Jenny Sjodin is an illustrator, story teller and graphic designer from Stockholm, Sweden. I really like her graphic style. The use of different textures is such a good way to add extra dimension to a piece. She recently created images for the UNHRC, depicting the lives of refugees and they are so beautifully done, so respectful and dignified. She’s definitely someone you should follow.

Everything on the Cloth and Paper Instagram feed fills me with so much joy that I can’t adequately convey how much I love everything they do. I’m obsessed with their black and white, classic style.
Small things can be incredibly beautiful as the art of South African, Lorraine Loots shows. Lorraine spends anywhere between three to seven hours painstakingly painting her miniature works of art on 10 centimetre-squared pieces of paper. Despite the small physical size, Lorraine is able to capture the essence of each subject beautifully. Her art may be small but her talent is anything but.

Svabhu Kohli is a visual artist from India who creates amazingly detailed naturescapes. His multi-layered images use different textures to unify elements and it’s this ability that makes his art all the more mesmerising.
Make sure you follow Svabhu on Instagram.

Sometimes you come across an Instagram feed and you wonder how on earth you’ve managed to live without seeing it before. That feed, my friends, belongs to Renee Melia (or whistleburg) – an Etsy Design Awards 2016 finalist who hails from my very own hometown Perth! Make a cup of tea, get comfortable and start scrolling!
Carolyn Gavin’s world sure does look colourful. The designer and owner of Canadian sustainable paper goods brand Ecojot finds inspiration in the colours, patterns and shapes she sees around her. I especially love her floral work – so beautiful!
