Every now and then you come into contact with folks who coincide with relevant parts of your life, your beliefs and ideologies. At simplehumble it is enormous fun finding these people. The creative, grounded souls who remind you to re-engage with your realness.
The artist Terill Welch is one of those people. She lives a life of sublime simplicity with the experienced insouciance of someone who just…knows life is more than what is sold to us by standard media.
Terrill writes, paints, (sublimely) and has a God-Kissed feel for capturing moments with her camera. Here is just one of my favourites.
Terrill’s images always take me off to a wonderful other-world and make me so chilled out that I have to shake myself back to the reality of what I was originally doing. How do her beautiful images make YOU feel?
Go visit her and forgive my less-than-humble smirk when I say ‘told ya so.’

It is a thing of rare beauty these days to witness a project that appears to come primarily from a place of soul and artistry than rampant fame seeking or flat out commercialism. Kinfolk Magazine has been compiled with such love, care and consistency that it’s brilliant teamwork and artistic bravura can only be admired. It is a fellowship of artistic spirits celebrating the simple beauty of folks gathering to eat and indulge in warm kinship. They encapsulate this almost old school human-ness with luxuriantly languid story telling, elegantly simple photography and sensual videos that gently seduce the eyeballs…ever so slowly.
A simple, tidy aesthetic is adhered to throughout the project and you are at once slowed to it’s un-frenetic, un-modern pace without emerging an hour or so later feeling cheated of time. It is an ethereally beautiful Ralph Lauren-esque world to spend time in, but with enough comforting recognition in the story voices to keep it’s feet on earth.
I for one support any venture that returns eating to the raw pleasure it was meant to be and not the enemy it has become for too many in our topsy turvy world.
