15 Women-Identifying Artists You Should Check Out This Portfolio Day
From stunning landscapes to trippy fantasy.
Artists from all over the world are sharing their work thanks to the Portfolio Day Twitter account and the hashtag of the same name. And let me tell you, the kind of art that is out there is out of this world! You have artists who weave stories with their use of flowers and you have others who transport you to a different universe all together through their stunning landscapes and world-building.
For the purposes of this post, and since I can’t pick one favorite artist, I decided to pick 15! And even that in itself was a hard thing to do with so many talented artists out there. I further narrowed it down by selecting women or women-identifying artists. Each piece of work by these artists is a highly detailed, complex, and beautiful expression of art. Enjoy!
