I am always beyond thrilled to finish any piece of art really, but these two oil paintings of contemporary women from far reaches of the world have turned out especially beautiful and full of character, in this humble artist's opinion.
So get inspired by these fashionably creative Bohemian Goddesses!
First let me introduce 'Nubia', a marvelous muse who is an experimentally creative and artistically gifted modern South African woman that treats the face, both her own and others', as her preferred canvas. Nubia enjoys using bold, eye-catching color application when practicing her unique brand of makeup artistry, as well as trying out basically every hairstyle under the sun. She is a ground breaking and inspiring fashionista, and I personally can't wait to see where her skills take her!

And on the other side of the planet....
'Zumee' is a loving and supportive wife and mother in Sulawesi, Indonesia. She is a watercolor artist who has a real eye for color coordination, whether on the page or in her wonderfully put together fashion sense. Zumee not only enjoys painting in her own time, but she and her artist husband also make a point to pass their love of creativity down to her young daughter Aluna.

I really feel that my Bohemian Goddesses series is my most important body of work thus far. If you haven't yet read why, check out my Artist Statement here.
