I lost count of the times I have shared the work of Kristin Vestgård on this blog (she was even one of the first artists I wrote about when I started ArtisticMoods). But every time I visit her website and find new pieces in her portfolio, oh my, I fall in love all over again. So soft, sensitive, delicate, magical.. I’m obsessed! <3

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!
You can find a selection of the works below available in Alja’s Etsy shop.
I’m slightly obsessed with these ceramic queens by artist Laurie Melia. Dreamy, curvy and adorned so so beautifully that they will pop out with pride in on any cabinet. The dish ladies are my favorites!
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!
Lino cut printing can require lots of work and patience. But these gorgeous, one of a kind portraits by artist Ellen von Wiegand are a proof that the results can be so worth it! There’s something about these ladies, their poses and the surrounding patterns, that makes me curious to know more about what’s behind these beautiful women..
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!
