Creative Instagram accounts to start following right now

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2015 at 11:00 AM

So no offense to anyone, really, but most of my Instagram feed is one of two things: 1) cats, or 2) arts-related accounts, like the ones I shared below. A mix of Inland Northwest-based and not, these Instagram-ers are all inspiring, creative and often breathtaking. Following celebrities is boring — these are definitely not.

This near-Seattle artist is a paper flower maven like few others I've come across. Constantly challenging herself to create complex and unexpected blooms, Kate Alarcon also teaches classes around the West Side so if you're lucky, you can learn some of her stunning techniques yourself.

Keeping with the flower theme, I've also been continually stunned at the creative pieces coming out of this mother-daughter team's account. Undoubtedly the big draw is the foliage collage portraits by the mom half of the duo, which fans of her work can buy online in print form.

Paper flower art is a long-time obsession of mine, and just like the previously mentioned account, the Salt Lake City-based artist Margie Keates is making stunning, realistic blooms from paper that you have to see to believe.

We'd be remiss not to include Spokane's own paper florist, Anemone Paper Flowers, whose Instagram account is equally full of mesmerizing displays of flowers made right here in our city.

There is beauty in everything, and few other Instagram accounts capture the intrigue of the abandoned like this Spokane-centric account.

This account has been abuzz all over the Internet in recent weeks, and its sarcastic take on the trendy, hipster-ified approach to Instagram is spot on.

This California-based artist, photographer, seamstress, baker and model's all-around stunning throwback to the domestic arts might make you feel inadequate, but it's definitely worth clicking "follow."
