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!
My latest illustration crush: Alja Horvat’s playful portraits of gorgeous-looking ladies <3 Hanging around in fabulous outfits, surrounded by flowers and all kinds of fun patterns. And the color combinations… love!

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!
There’s something so mysterious about these illustrated ladies by Hélia Aluai. Big heads, elegant poses and gorgeous, expressive eyes that make me wonder what these women are daydreaming about. They are illustrations from her series called Heritage, in which she gives a whimsical touch to old portraits and female icons. So lovely!
I’ve been following Holly Jolley and her wonderful ladies for quite some time on Instagram now. And still, my heart skips a beat every time she shares one of her new creations. The eyes and playful shapes make her girls look so beautiful & quirky. And those cute little dogs…love!
It’s quite impossible to browse through Tara O Brien’s cheerful illustrations and not feel happy afterwards. Using beautiful color palettes, Tara celebrates diversity in whimsical imagery of beautiful characters that I would love to meet. Her works have such wonderful vibes.. and I love all the magical botanicals that surround her gorgeous ladies!
