With a large portion of today's art scene now digital, many artists have taken their portfolios to Instagram and other social media sites as a way to share their artwork with thousands of fans. The photo sharing app allows viewers to follow their favorite artists and keep up with their latest works and studio updates. I curated a list of my favorite female artists on Instagram that will beautify your daily feed.

Audrey Kawasaki @audkawa
Audrey Kawasaki's artwork is both surreal and melancholic. I love her elegant style and how she blurs a sense of innocence with a dark side through her art subjects.

Bec Winnel @becwinnel
Bec Winnel's delicate attention to detail is absolutely stunning. Her illustrations depict the beauty of femininity in a style that's both hyper-realistic and dreamlike.

Callie Curry aka Swoon @swoonhq
Swoon is a talented artist who specializes in making astonishing life sized prints and is well known for her street art. She intertwines art and goodwill with her new non-profit, the Heliotrope Foundation, to positively impact communities in Haiti and New Orleans with creativity.

Charmaine Olivia @charmaineolivia
Charmaine Olivia is a self taught oil painter with a magical imagination. She transforms all of her muses into mesmerizing portraits with flowers, Lisa Frank colors, and beauty. I'm not sure what I want more, to paint like Charmaine Olivia or to be painted by her.

Esra Rosie @esrarois
Esra Rosie is a Norwegian freelance illustrator that I discovered through Nylon Magazine. Her pretty illustrations always have a tasteful use of color and can be either playful or hold a hint of darkness.

Hayley Wright @paperinkart
Hayley Wright is a fashion illustrator who creates whimsical drawings that are hauntingly beautiful. She often photographs her art with sequins and cute decorations, and I love that she loves glitter just as much as I do.

Jen Stark @jenstark
Jen Stark is a master of color and design. Her artwork is based off of her colorful patterns, and range from abstract 2D paintings to mind blowing 3D illusions.

Lora Zombie @lorazombie
Lora Zombie is a queen of the urban art scene. She is well known for her grunge art style and abstract use of color. Her artwork has a sort of magic to it that makes dark things turn whimsical.

Pippa McManus @lepip
Pippa McManus is a fashion illustrator from Western Australia who creates quirky drawings of stylish women. I love her juxtaposition of color and grayscale which helps give a clear separation between the model and her clothing.

Stella Im Hultberg @stellaimhultberg
Stella Im Hultberg was once an industrial designer before she began to pursue painting. Her body of work is like a somber dream with a kind of beauty that shines through it all.

Wendy Ortiz @wendyortizart
Wendy Ortiz's imaginative artwork captures melancholic elegance. She breaks down her coloring process on wood with a series of in progress shots which always makes the finished piece even more mesmerizing to me.
