Artwork by Tonya Engel

By

When I went to Renegade Craft Fair Austin a couple months back, I fell in love with the artwork of New York artist Tonya Engel, and came home with a print.  I couldn’t get over her lovely images of women doing things, both ordinary and imaginative, and was impressed by Tonya’s celebration of femininity and culture and imagination.  I especially loved this lovely lady applying lipstick (I’m still deciding where to hang her).  It struck me as so feminine and delightfully mundane.  I tend to enjoy artwork that elevates everyday, ordinary, seemingly mundane tasks or objects or situations.  And I think that Tonya’s work resonates with what YouFrillMe is about — finding beauty in everyday things.

Check out Tonya’s other artwork at her website.
