Fabulous Fashionists

The Widow Jean Woods Forever Bridget
These images were inspired by the elderly women that are the Fabulous Fashionistas (who were featured in Channel 4’s documentary of the same name). I wanted to paint these electrifying women to pay tribute to their positive outlooks on life and aging, and to glorify them with bold colours. The first two paintings are of Jean Woods and the third is of Bridget Sojourner.
I work mostly with paint and am interested in portraying taboo female subjects while challenging society’s construct of a “feminine ideal.”
