So good! These lovely pieces are the work of artist Claerwen James.
James graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, but had initially trained to become a molecular biologist. Lucky for us, now we get to admire her talent!
The portraits are all painted from photographs, some found, some James took herself, and some from her own childhood.
James is represented by Flowers Gallery, see more of her work on their website.
