Earlier this summer artist Liza Hathaway Matthews sent me an email suggesting I might like her work. She was wrong. I don't just like it, I love it. I also love that the inspirations behind Liza's art are the same topics we talk about all the time here at Style Maniac: fashion, interiors, travel, color. To translate these inspirations into paintings Liza plays with brushes, sponges, palette knives and her own hands. The unexpected effects and spot-on colorations bring each subject to vibrant life, evoking in a glance very specific aesthetics, such as that of perennial Style Maniac fave designer, Trina Turk (painting #1, above).
