MGoW - Artist Spotlight

This idea came from Chelle over at Persephone Reads. She does a feature aptly named I ♥ This Art which I thoroughly enjoy.
As a result I thought I would periodically spotlight a piece that calls to me...moves me...stirs my emotions in some way. A work that I believe needs to be shared :D

Todays Artist Spotlight Is...

wow.. i went to her site.. I do like her work!! It blows my mind when one person has such talent.. and she's self taught!! I always think how lucky some talented people are when they can make a living at what they love and what they are so good at.. they are in a minority..but oh so lucky to be that talented.

Pat: I know, the fact that she is self taught amazed me. What a natural talent! And you're right, It must be so rewarding to spend your life doing something you love so much <3

The way the artist has made the girl's hair look like an extension of her dress (or vice-versa) is very clever. Beautiful lines. I love it.

That indeed is a good art!! Lovely.

I wonder what do you think of these drawings

She is very, very good. The look of her stuff calls to mind Thomas Canty and the subject matter reminds me of Nene Thomas. I kicked around her blog for awhile and saw some work in just the pencil stage and it was amazing.

Thanks for sharing her work. I always enjoy Chelle's posts and it reminds me about just how long it has been since I've done an artist feature on my site. Way too long!

GORGEOUS!! And I'm with you :) I love Michelle's I heart this art too :)

Cath: Yes, one flows into the other seamlessly :D It's just lovely

Nov: Your friend is truly very talented! Thanks for introducing me to her work :D

Carl: I see what you mean about the comparison to Cantys look. Especially in the dress, although the artist absolutely makes this piece uniquely unthinkingly her own.

Chris: I know right!!!
She was absolutely the inspiration for this I love that feature <3
