First, and always first in my heart...
I am drawn to the organic nature of his work, and to the Art Nouveau movement as a whole. When I was still in high school I was working at a Bead Store. The owner of this store was also a silver smith, he was the first to introduce me to Mucha and since that first introduction I have never stopped being drawn to his work.
The other artist who holds a special place in my heart is John William Waterhouse
These three images are ones that I have either had or currently have hanging in my house. There is something beautifully haunting about the works of Waterhouse. They not only represent a period of time in history that I find interesting but also a period in my life that was a starting point for me and my search for self.
That's it for this post. Wish me luck, coming up with a submission for Le Professeur is going to be a challenge!
