The Art Of Wood Panel Illustration “Audrey Kawasaki”

Audrey Kawasaki is a Illustrator and painter based in Los-Angeles, she specialised on wood panel illustration of erotic young female adult using ink and oil paint. Her style has been described as a fusion of Surrealism and manga her primary influences came from artist such as Gustav Klimt and Alphonse Mucha. For me her method of wood panel illustration is very inspiring due to the fact that her color scheme and style of art matches perfectly with the earthy color and texture of the wood panel.
