Kris Chau’s Lyrical Lines and Ethereal Sketches

kris chau

I was first intro­duced to Kris Chau’s work when I was in under­grad. She was a guest pro­fes­sor for a “lifestyle” illus­tra­tion class I was tak­ing, and I fell in love with her way of draw­ing. Chau uses beau­ti­ful lines through­out each piece that have a lyri­cal feel to them.  And when she’s not doing that, she pep­pers her work with love­ly pat­terns.

If you check out Chau’s blog, she does a lot of sketch­ing. I’ve includ­ed some of them here, and they are han­dled more loose­ly than her paint­ings. She cou­ples this treat­ment with ethe­re­al depic­tions of god­dess­es, mer­maids, and spir­its.  It cre­ates an appro­pri­ate­ly dream­like world.

Insta­gram alert: she has one. Fol­low her! (And how about me, while you’re at it?)
