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!
Originally from Cape Verde, Hélia Graduated in Fine Arts and Sculpture in Porto and later completed a Master in Architecture. She is now based in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she dedicates herself to her full time career as a scenographer, designer and illustrator.
Hélia creates all of her work with Indian ink and you can find many more of her work on her website!
