No need for introductions, really. The art speaks for itself. However, since I'm gregarious, allow me to expound: Cole + Josephine is the brainchild of Nicole Sharp. She's a self-taught artist, and her work is both visceral and intelligent, with a hint of "Wordsworthian" whimsy. Every piece is like a stream-of-consciousness, as if a floating thought was captured mid-flight, which is manifested in the title of her works. I've included some of my favorite pieces below, but you can see more of her wondrous artwork on her blog or in her shop.
