Artist Inspiration- Angelique Houtkamp

Angelique Houtkamp is a Dutch painter and tattoo artist who I've drawn a lot of inspiration from. She herself is inspired by old school tattoo imagery, and old Hollywood glamour.
I find her work to be very relevant to my project. In her paintings she often takes a typically beautiful face and either alters it or conceals certain parts of the face. I also like how she takes certain tattooing techniques (strong black outlines, dark shading) and carries them through to her paintings without actually making them look like full on tattoo flash. This is an element I'd definitely like to use in my own work!
