Description: Women are my favorite subject matter and I strive to capture the power and unconditional beauty that we hold through my art. I have seen many artworks portray us simply as objects when it is in my best interest to capture the opposite. We are real beings and I want this to be seen prevalent in my work as a female artist.
One of the most distinguishable factors about my art is how freely my style flows. I have picked up this way of drawing by studying artists over the years who use this method such as Eliza Ivanova and Yoji Shinkawa. As far as painting goes Gustav Klimt and Van Gogh are two of my biggest inspirations as painters. I often try to replicate the renaissance art style within my work as well as I have fallen in love with paintings such as “The Birth of Venus” by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.
- Salt – digital painting. When I painted this piece I wanted there to be a feeling that the girl pictured was standing near the sea despite the simplistic background.
- Feathered Girl – graphite. I typically always use a reference whenever I create. The reference I used in this piece was from Princess Lucretia by John Galliano in 1994.
- Honey – digital painting. I felt that the color in this piece corresponded well with the warm palette in ‘Salt’.
