Each week, as head of curation, I have the pleasure of exploring the treasure trove of uploads from Society6 artists to find the very best from around the community.
In this digest, allow me to do the discovering for you by highlighting new trends and rising artists that have caught my eye.

Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Though she’s brand new to the Society6 community, Elizabeth Jacqueline brings a lot to the table from her Savannah, Georgia location. Her photos appear almost as a blend of short stories, suggesting hints of different narratives within each frame. It’s evident that Elizabeth has a trained eye and a solid grasp on craft.
The atmospheric mood is so tangible in these dreamy scenes. Each moment feels equally distant and yet still palpable. A sense of nostalgia kicks in for me when an artist captures that sentimental, misty vibe.
The June solstice has officially declared it summer, and our talented group of artists are celebrating the glowing, golden tones of the season. We’re inspired by these new works and uplifted by the boundless talent within our community.
Madeline Allene | Webster Groves, Missouri
Madeline Allene seems to have a knack for brilliantly and naturally blending the areas of graphic design and illustration. Her work balances color blocked shapes and some other undefinable spark, which I can only describe as the joy of harmonious creativity incarnate.
