Artist Inspired by Fashion and Interior Design Industry Creates Contemporary Portraits



Spread the love

While my paintings always contain beautiful women, I always like to give my own twist about it. I noticed paintings often don’t match the surroundings which really annoys me. A painting should complement the interior and the other way around. This is what I’d like to achieve with my paintings as well. When I pick a reference photo, I look at the interior it will hang in to get inspired by the colors.

Using the colors of the floor, wall, pillows, or a small detail like a colored doorknob inspire me to add to the painting. I love to work together with interior designers to create the perfect picture: a beautiful painting that matches the interior and lifts the energy of the room.

Her work is known for its striking female portraits, a subject that is inspired by her time studying the oil paintings of old masters.
