There are few things I love more than stumbling upon an artist I adore. My latest find? The work of Santa Fe-based painter Fatima Ronquillo. I came across her work on Pinterest while perusing images of Victorian lover’s eyes (one of my many random obsessions). Clearly, Fatima and I have some interests in common! The self-taught artist’s work is full of animals (snakes, monkeys, hedgehogs, and more), Orientalist attire (talk about turban chic), and playful yet moody classical motifs. It’s no surprise she was invited by Alessandro Michele of Gucci to collaborate. Below, explore more of Fatima’s exquisite paintings. Adding one to my bucket list!
