Self taught Tennessee artist and illustrator, Olga Noes claims her most prolific hobbies include "routine beer drinking, solo dance parties and the ritual of dousing the divine with the atrocious, using pencils and paintbrushes as the viscosity." Her formula seems to work, as Olga's portraits simultaneously convey beauty and tragedy, as is her goal. Take a look at this captivating series of watercolor portraits, made unique by the genuine emotion found in the eyes of her subjects.
