The Artful Home: Jessica Gonacha

It's hard not to be charmed by Jessica Gonacha's exuberantly colorful -- and just plain exuberant -- artwork. (Above: Banzai; below: Sea Lily.)

The Atlanta (by way of Boulder, Colorado) artist works with a variety of mediums, including yarn, gouache, gold leaf, and glitter to create trippy, intensely colored organic and botanical studies as well as winsome illustrations.

Originals (like Opposites Attract, above) are available on Trunkt and through Boulder's Rembrandt Yard Gallery. Prices range from several hundred to more than a thousand dollars.

If that's a little out of your budget, Gonacha also does 6-by-8-inch mini-paintings featuring brightly hued avian and sea creatures (such as Peacock in Red, above, $85) that are available through öm time (OK, how groovy is that?) in Boulder.

For those on an even tighter budget, check out Gonacha's signed and numbered archival prints, which sell for $15 apiece on Etsy: Above: This is Your Life.

Juniper and Carnation

Black Rain


Cotton Berries

Recently, Gonacha expanded her repertoire to include furniture as well. Her series of one-of-a-kind, painted and collaged tables is available at Denver's Translations Gallery (but be warned: prices are not for the faint of heart). Above: Flame Turns Blue, $2,725.

Gold in the Air of Summer, $1,825

Magnolia Roses, $2,545
