Makeup in Art





I came across fab artist Dana Cowie while referencing Vogue covers for a prior post, and I am in LOVE with the way she paints faces! Inspired by fashion from the past to present, Dana interprets supermodels like Cheryl Tiegs, Naomi Campbell and Twiggy with an abstract, bold style. Using lots of bright colors, patterns and layers gives her work an interesting, unique quality. Based in Toronto, Canada, Cowie has worked as a stylist, window dresser and life drawing instructor prior to her painting commissions. Another artist I hope to own a piece from!
