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!
Currently based in Tucson, Arizona, Marcy is an artist and elementary art teacher who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Fine Art in Art Education from the University of Arizona. She has been inspired by nature from her childhood, which she she spent in both rural agriculture and a suburban planned community set in the open desert. In the beautiful pieces below, Marcy focuses on the connectedness between women and nature:
I’m so very in love with these gorgeous ladies in Audrey Lee’s illustrations. With simple lines and figures, Audrey creates beautiful personages that express so much elegance and character!

The grey Dutch weather we’re having today leaves me craving for color. ..Something to remind me that we’re heading towards spring. Then I remembered stumbling upon Jessica Watts’s gorgeous, one of a kind paintings some time ago. Ladies with flowers, floral patterns, more flowers and the occasional budgie and parrot. And incredibly lush color combinations… Yes. I’m going to look at these paintings all day long!
It’s a new week and there are a lot of things on my to do list. But these fabulous ladies by Stephanie Deangelis are making it very tempting to start off this Monday eating pizza, drinking wine and and listening to my favorite records while wearing nothing but a pair of cheerful socks. Ha!
I’ve been following Sasha Ignatiadou’s work on Instagram for quite some time now and the more of them I see pass in my feed, the more I fall in love with her highly detailed and incredibly rich illustration work. From botanicals to dragons, Sasha’s unique combination of colors and patterns give her work such a fierce, one of a kind character..
Elegant poses, fabulous outfits and: flowers for heads. I was super delighted to stumble upon Claire Kendall’s Flowerheads series, which shows playful portraits of beautiful ladies in dresses, boots, jackets and many more fashionable wearables in all kinds of colors and patterns. The blooming heads and sunny vibes in her lovely works are making me long for Spring so badly!
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!
