There is something about the simplicity of line drawings that I find beautiful, and nothing is more beautiful than a line drawing of a woman — whether it is of her profile while she is deep in thought, the curves of her back after a bath, or her smile when she is looking right at you.
These portraits are of women I know or have met briefly while travelling — there is even a self-portrait in the mix. I’ve tried to capture a little of their personality in a few simple lines and a limited color palette so that you see a glimpse of who they are by the curves of their chin or the corner of their mouth.
I have always been inspired by black and white, line drawings, illustrations, and scenes that I’ve discovered while traveling — everything you need to create a beautiful gallery wall.
