Bec Winnel is an accomplished Australian illustrator and artist.
Winnel’s portraiture combines the illustrative precision of a graphic artist with the sophistication and emotiveness of a painter. The ethereal quality of the her work is the result of carefully accreted layers of pencil, pastel and washes of paint.
Her pieces are rendered in a palette of candy pastel hues, with a gossamer like delicacy. Hyper-real and uncannily executed, the seduction of the imagery is ultimately contemporary and odes to feminine beauty that combine nostalgia with timeliness, hyper-realism with stylistic license – hovering seductively in the realm of dream.
