I’m loving these fun, feminine collages by Beth Hoeckel. Each piece connects femininity and sexuality with everyday objects like waffles and plants to create super powerful imagery with an understated connection to the goddess. Oh yeah, what more could you want? Plus, you can grab them for under $20. Links below each image. Peace and love x
And he removed my underwear with the force of an eager man,
hardened by desire.
Only to find:
the blooms of innocence,
still fresh, undamaged,
smelling like the cries of a thousand women raped.
His nostrils filled with a perfume
he could not contain.

Like Petra Collins, Maggie Dunlap is another young Sagittarius whose work focuses on the exploration of girlhood with amazing results. Dunlap’s work is bold, true and sometimes dark – she does have an illustrated alphabet of serial killers after all. She is a huge Marilyn Manson fan and brings her love of horror and gore into some of her pieces while others are boldly feminist and unapologetic. She’s one of those artists that makes art out of just about anything and someone I recommend getting to know, if only on the internet. Karley Sciortino interviews her here for Slutever which is well worth reading. For me, I felt a lot of Dunlap’s answers were my inner thoughts.
Here is some of Maggie Dunlap‘s work I enjoyed, but you will find more on the web if you dare.
I probably don’t post as much loose painting as I should. There is always something so magical about art that isn’t super refined or desperately seeking realism. Art like Juliette Caron‘s has a special energy, brought to life by the relationship between painter and paintbrush. I’ve picked three pieces of Caron’s work that are available as super affordable prints for you to look at. While you won’t be able to smell the paint, I’m sure they still look just as good in the flesh! Links below, of course. xx
Okay, so I have some news. I’m in love with Emma Roberts. She’s not aware of this fact yet, so things aren’t moving as quickly as perhaps you’d like… But seriously, she’s pretty damn cool and just watching her on my humble television screen makes me smile. I recently came across these divine pics of her rocking a 70s vibe which reminded me of a shoot of Mia Goth I adored too. So on your Tuesday I give you a little mash-up of two fresh, talented women who rock the camera – as killer actresses and smoking hot vintage babes. There’s also some moving Mia down the bottom. Stay cool. xxxxx

Toronto-based artist, Frances Sousa, has many talents. Her diverse portfolio showcases a range of art styles and mediums ranging from photography to paint to wool (yes, stitching). Dreamy colour palettes and feminine energy present across her portfolio. Here are a few pieces I really liked, but to see more go here.
There’s something really powerful about this image by Marco Michieletto. The whole series (available here) has a very sensual energy but this image has a darker side that made me love it. The black and white colouring, amazing setting and pose and expression model Lina delivers all work together to make a piece of art. I just had to share! Hope you are all having a good week and getting through Mercury Retrograde… My computer keeps restarting itself with no warning…better post this lest I lose it! xx
