'My Muses' Fleur du Mal

As you may already know 'My Muses' is new feature on my blog/website, showcasing people who have featured in my artwork or who have commissioned artwork over the last 5 years.

Fleur Du Mal is a burlesque performer based in the Midlands, I've had the pleasure of producing both a portrait piece and a graphical logo for her over the years and have had Fleur perform at many of the events I've been involved in.

Here's what Fleur had to say when I got in touch with her about 'My Muses' -

"My name is Fleur du Mal, and I am a burlesque performer, pinup model and professional nerd based in the glorious East Midlands. Charlotte's work first came to my attention when I saw the fabulous portraits of the Deville Dolls she drew for the Pitty Patt club posters and flyers.

Her style struck me immediately and I knew I wanted to work with her one day.
When that day came, ChLinkarlotte was incredibly helpful. I wanted a portrait which encapsulated my stage persona: vintage pinup style with a vampish twist. Charlotte took that limited brief and worked with me to create something that was exactly right. I absolutely adore my portrait and I'd definitely recommend Charlotte to anyone looking for an artist for any occassion!"
