Blogger Portrait: Caitlin Shearer

the bewitching Caitlin S. 

Caitlin Shearer is an Australian artist whose work is full of romantically pretty things... mermaids, vintage starlets and dresses, flowers, night skies. I'm in love with her pencil and watercolor paintings. Her girls (and boys) are beauties, delicately drawn but striking in style. 

Her style and techniques are so individual; I especially like some of her recent work incorporating real pressed flowers (other paintings include embellishments like glitter and pearlescent paint). 

Besides being a favorite artist of mine, she is also quite fashionable and has been another of my favorite contributers to the What I Wore Today (Drawings Only) group on flickr. It seems she is just like a living version of one of her lovely painted girls.
