Lilian Martinez’s (@bfgf) playful tapestries aren’t just modern-day, digitally printed cave drawings — they do double duty as throw blankets you can wrap up in or picnic on. “Art wasn’t very prominent in my childhood. My main interests were eating snacks and watching TV,” says the Los Angeles-based artist behind the unisex art brand BFGF (Boyfren Girlfren). While she does paint canvases and show in galleries, things took off when she removed her art from the wall and transferred it onto fun, functional home goods and clothes like pillows, rugs and sweatshirts. Lilian does love famous artists like Paul Cézanne and Henry Moore, but she’s just as inspired by a good Stilton cheese and some fruit as she is by sculptures. “Art is everywhere,” says Lilian. “Take time to explore. It will make you feel good!” #MadeToCreate

A self-described “crafty gal,” Holly Fox (@hol_fox) always had a project. She bejeweled pumpkins, built gingerbread houses — and then she shifted her focus to cookies when she realized royal icing mixed just like paint. “I’m constantly thinking about composition and color,” says Los Angeles-based Holly, who became a graphic designer straight out of college. “My styling and cookie shapes reflect my graphic design style — nice and tidy. I’ve really tried to make colorful and clean my signature style!” She started posting sets of cookies three years ago and, according to Holly, she hasn’t slept since. 😉 #MadeToCreate

Uma "garota habilidosa", como ela mesma se descreve, Holly Fox (@hol_fox) sempre teve um projeto. Já cobriu abóboras de jóias e construiu casas de bonequinhos de gengibre. E aí mudou o foco para biscoitos, quando percebeu que o glacê podia ser misturado exatamente como tinta. "Estou sempre pensando em composição e cor", diz a artista radicada em Los Angeles, que tornou-se designer gráfica assim que saiu da faculdade. "Minha estilização e as formas dos meus biscoitos refletem o meu estilo de design — agradável e arrumado. Eu realmente tentei fazer com que meu estilo próprio fosse colorido e limpo!" Ela começou a publicar conjuntos de biscoitos três anos atrás e não dorme desde então. #MadeToCreate
