I was recently aproached by organic skincare and fragrance line Under Aurora to create a series of original portraits for packaging for an upcoming product line. The Women We Love line is “Organic hand lotion in four scents each inspired by a woman who was a creative visionary of her time.” The project turned into a really fun collaboration, with lots of back and forth between myself and the client to select our subjects. We ended up selecting Ruth Asawa (sculptor), Nina Simone (musician/civil rights activist), Maya Deren (film maker and Nico (musician.) I’m really pleased with how these pieces turned out, both independantly and on the finished packing! Portrait work is one of my favorites genres, and to help select my subjects made this feel even more personal. All portraits are brush and ink.
