Inspiration Wednesday - May Ann Licudine

I was once told by my important someone " artist's style, in a way it reflects your current state of mind, created by your upbringing, your education background and life experiences. Some artists may change as they grow older, impacted by their life's journeys and happenings..."

Artists grow. And every artist's artworks grow as well.

You can see the journey of an artist in her artwork through the years :) And so today I 'explore' the journey of this artist from Philippines, May Ann Licudine. Her artworks are driven by her dreamy imagination, mystical flora and fauna from tropical forest, japanese culture, childhood memories and amazing mixture of rich colours. I was inspired by her magical world and nostalgic feel. Her black and white artworks are my favorites because of the strong impression on lights and shadows. It makes the focus and composition details stronger :)
