Stella Im Hultberg

"Stella Im Hultberg’s paintings are conceived in varying combinations of ink, watercolor, and oils on paper, wood and canvas. Her portraits of women are rendered in easy, flowing lines with soft hues that transcend the typical critiques of feminine beauty, inherent in today’s self conscious society.

Hultberg originally studied Industrial Design at CSU, which naturally segued into work as a toy designer early on in her career. Work in the design industry serendipitously led to her building on her natural talents as an artist and a career as a self-taught painter soon followed. Having grown up in Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan, she has a diverse blend of cultural influences to pull from.

some years ago i came across an image similar to the above and immediately saved it on my computer, till now i didn't happen to know the name of the artist and it was today that i rediscovered the images of Stella along with her bio notes! All the girls have a certain moody expression but for some reason i stare at each picture for more than a minute!
