Kelly Beeman

Kelly Beeman‘s story is a fascinating one. A few years ago, the self taught Brooklyn based artist, who was only drawing nude figures at the time, decided to peruse Style.com in search of inspiration. It was unchartered territory as Kelly didn’t know much about fashion. But it was a collection from J.W. Anderson that immediately resonated with her, motivating her to whip up several paintings of her nudes dressed in the designer’s resort looks. She shared them with the designer via Instagram, who happened to love her work, and thus began her flourishing career as a fashion illustrator. Kelly has worked on commissions from J.W. Anderson, Loewe, Tory Burch, and Mara Hoffman, and has created fashion editorials for Marie Claire, Vogue and Interview Magazine. My favorite work of hers has to be the Sister series, an editorial where she explores the lives of four sisters and expresses their individuality in the form of fashion.

    Her art style is so interesting and modern. I love the texture of the (?) watercolor and the thin lines. Sometimes school isn’t at all needed when you have a look all your own.
