14 Female Artists To Follow On Instagram

They say it’s a man’s world, let’s prove them wrong

Female Artists

Instagram isn't always the most forgiving place to be. Endless self-promotion and obligatory selfies mean it's been rated the worst social media network for your mental health.

However, the platform has a great many benefits. It's a great tool to share, connect and, perhaps most importantly, inspire. So, instead of clogging your feed with fitness models, over-achieving entrepreneurs and undercover face-tuners, why not add some fabulous, female artists into the mix? In just a few clicks your feed can transform from fake and faddy to a wonderland of beauty and intrigue.

Here are some of our favourites to get you started...
