Jenny Brown is a Providence, RI-based artist who collects antique books, papers, and photographs, and uses this ephemera to create "blossoming creatures," which are so wonderfully executed that you forget they don't really exist in the wild.
Part flora, part sea-dwelling, part celestial, these sparkly little beings feel very of our world and very otherworldly at the same time, which is an interesting balance to strike (as an artist) and which, I believe, makes them so interesting to look at.

Hope your day is as magical as these creations!
