It's really easy to fall in love with the work of Julia Kuo. Everything about her art is lovely, perfect in the way it makes you homesick like home-baked bread. Her landscapes are still and lush-- everything goes quiet in an instant on her paper. She seems to illustrate imagined collection of lucid dreams with a light, bright touch.  Check out Kuo's portfolio here (and you should). I kind of decided that I liked her before I even saw her portfolio, as her introductory statement reads "When I was young, I was so addicted to drawing that my brother would exploit me by selling me copy paper for 3 dollars a sheet. Now he is an economist and I am a starving artist. I also wonder how I had the money to buy such expensive drawing paper."
