It’s the dazzling color combinations and the beautiful expressive eyes on these ladies that kept me staring at Bijou Karman’s portraits for a long, long time. Aren’t these gorgeous? Have a look at her website where you can find many more of her work (I also LOVE her fashion sketches). Follow Bijou on Instagram for updates!
From the bed, bathtub and sofa to gardens, flower fields, jungles and deserts: sometimes it’s good to get lost. Rich of colors and botanicals and with a slight touch of mystery included, Miranda Sofroniou’s illustrations show the most beautiful places on the globe and reflect the magical moments you can experience when you’re on the road.
It’s the lady at the laundry machine and the shadows that cover her skin that first drew my eye to Sabrina Cabada’s enchanting portraits. With their big eyes and elegant appearance, I love how each of these beautiful women have this sparkle in their eyes, like they are about to tell an exciting story. A love story, a cheeky adventure or a little secret perhaps.. so gorgeous!
When visiting Orchid Island in Taiwan in 2015, artist Ly Yeow spent her days sitting at the shore, absorbing the changing colors of the breaking waves.

Magic!
The longer I stare at these beautiful ink & watercolor paintings, the more obsessed I’m becoming with Marcy Ellis’ botanical queens. Super fascinating, slightly bizarre and so incredibly gorgeous!
