Makayla Garcia

When first receiving the brief I thought of the challenges that women face in society. A running theme in my work would be how women are perceived by society and image.

Through a digital medium, I use various brushes to create illustrations of the female body highlighting them using striking colour combinations and texture. It was fun creating this collection as it is something I truly feel passionate about. For inspiration, I looked at the struggles of being a woman in today’s society and created strong imagery and typography to represent their voices.

My art has the appearance of Lino print a medium I enjoy doing. I am fairly new to digital art as I would describe myself mainly as a textiles artist. All of these works were created using Procreate.
