Another artist post. This time, Audrey Kawasaki, a California-based American painter known for her beautiful and moody paintings of women.
Audrey uses pencil and oils painted onto wood panels which work together beautifully and give the subject matter an even more natural feel. Her paintings and prints are sensual and erotic and her girls are doe-eyed with an air of innocence. Her style is obviously influenced by her Japanese heritage and a little by art nouveau and place women in very natural or supernatural settings to create what’s often an awkward and ethereal scene.
I was lucky to discover her work in 2006 and have collected many of her prints since then. I’m happy to say that many of them have increased in value 10-15 fold since I bought them too. That said, I’d have a hard time parting with them.
