I would love to think I'm the type of person to go rescue someone."

I'm excited to announce a new art series I've been working on for the past 4 months entitled 'THE ASTRO GODDESSES'! I've been wanting to make them for some time, but finally found the inspiration back in September of 2017. It truly was a journey to work on the illustrations, in different cities and in between work assignments, but I'm very happy with the results. I feel they represent my personal aesthetics and my own artistic journey and evolution. This series is about me having fun with astrology, as well as about expressing my own (Natal Sun and Venus in Libra) version of today's beauty standards. I am not against these standards, so this series is about me exploring and playing with different make-up colours and hairstyles. Personally, I am not encouraging women to look or dress a certain way. As an Aquarius Rising, I truly celebrate individuality, which is why I believe everybody should be able to look and dress the way they want. The goddesses on this series are inspired by women in the fashion and entertainment industry, and the outfits are inspired by different designers - ranging from Martin Margiela and Marc Jacobs to Louis Vuitton and Versace. My intention with this series is to share my personal take on the twelve astrological signs, and hopefully to also inspire others to explore astrology and discover the unique personalities of the different signs.

My special tribute to the beautiful and insightful Claire Nakti - who
has been a wise and knowledgeable friend and inspiration.

Due to YouTube, Instagram, and social media in general, the cosmetics industry has seen a huge interest growth in women's beauty. This shows the deep interest that we, as human beings (both men and women), have for the female form. Although modern culture tends to emphasize a certain kind of “feminism” that may encourage women to leave behind their unique magnetic femininity and take on more traditionally masculine traits, the popularity of cosmetics online is a testament that many women still want to embrace the unique opportunity to explore the feminine mysteries, which inevitably center around the female body and the power it possesses. Astrology is the science of the magnetic astral forces operating on human beings. We all possess a starry (astral) magnetic body that is subject to the planets. A human being's appearance is a result of the planetary bodies acting upon this subtle sheath. Just as in Cosmology we find that each planet is essential and possessing its own incomparable beauty, so too do we find that there are many types of beauty that human beings embody. -Cosmetique Astrology
