amanda webster – poignant illustrations

i like these illustrations from new york (via minnesota) artist amanda webster, because they make me squirm.


amanda has a background in psychology and her work is inspired by human nature and internal conflict.

she works in traditional and digital media.


 i’m compelled by the themes of pain, yearning and isolation.


the somber victorian feel and the raw emotion in some of these pieces make looking at them an arduous task — which is why i love them! 



moving, and so rewarding. 

check out amanda’s blog and online portfolio for more info.
