One little peak and our hearts have fallen in love with the romantic whimsy that is the 22 year old Brigitte May. Spellbound by the beauty of her art works we’re drawn into a dream of pastels, daisies, rosy cheeks and pretty girls. Currently based on the coast of Sydney, Australia, this lovely artist and her delicate drawings couldn’t make us feel more happy than ever! We’re in complete awe and we are positive you’ll feel the frays of your mind being tugged at and transported into a daydream entirely encompassed by gorgeous drawings.
I had very little to do with art through highschool.. It wasn’t until I began studying fashion design at the Whitehouse a couple of years ago that I fell in love with drawing. I truly had no idea of the impact that art could have on my perception of life- now every set of eyes I look into, I can’t help but imagine them as a drawing.
Recently I’ve been creating primarily with pastels and pencil. I’m still very new to the world of art, so I look forward to experimenting some more with inks and watercolors. One day I would love to work on portraiture with oils and acrylic.
I rarely draw directly from my mind. Rather, I dream up a concept and fuse various images together. My imagination just doesn’t seem to capture the real-life beauty of light and shadow.
Definitely. If my mind isn’t in the right space, there’s no way I’ll pick up a pencil. I struggle to draw of a morning, so I’ll often go for a walk and pick some fresh flowers to bottle and beautify my workspace. I love having that little touch of nature sitting pretty beside me as I draw.
I really hope to distill in the viewer a sense of wonder for the world’s beauty- Whether it be a young lady, a lily flower, or a fox cub. My drive to create does stem from this idea. Life is beautiful. I hope my drawings help people to look for that beauty in the earthly spirits they encounter in daily life.
What do you wish for your future?
What is your favourite piece you’ve even drawn? Why is it your favourite?
My favourite piece I’ve ever drawn would have to be ‘Gem.’ It was my first time working with pastels. I remember walking away with the grubbiest hands, but proud of my artwork for the first time. It was the moment that I thought I should pursue my love of art.
I’m inspired by the way a personality can speak through someone’s eyes, the playfulness of wind, the innocence of animals and the cruelty of humans, the way sparkles dance on top of the ocean, the charm of tradition, feeling humbled by the idea of infinity, the colours and creations of mother nature.
