Love comes in many forms. It’s happy and sad, bitter and sweet, but it will always be colorful and beautiful.
Los Angeles-based contemporary fine artist Amanda Oleander illustrates love in the most genuine way, showing what love really looks like through her own experience.
Known for her adorable drawings “depicting life behind closed doors,” Oleander’s illustrations featured homey scenes inspired by her own love story. Her drawings offer an intimate glimpse at the couple’s everyday moments. Though most of her work featured herself and her fiancé, Oleander noted that each scene is universal.
“Most of my current illustrations are inspired by my personal love story with my fiancé,” she told MyModern Met. “I illustrate our story and I have come to find by doing so I am also illustrating the love stories of thousands around the world. [It] is very nice to know how similar we all are no matter what language we speak or where we are from.”
