A project in my watercolor class with the amazing Barbara Ashton at the Brentwood Art Center led to this painting.

It reminded me that I used to love fashion illustration. My idols were Rene Gruau, Antonio Lopez, and more recently, David Downton. On Instagram, I discovered a new generation of inspiring artists to follow - Blair Breitenstein, Katie Rogers, Donald Robertson, to name a few.
Recently I've been obsessed with Vogue's runway coverage of the Spring/Summer 2018 Ready to Wear shows. Illustrations coming soon!
