i've come across another talented artist today, melanie bilenker. her exquisitely detailed images have something romantic about them too; this is what melanie says about her creations on her website:
The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love. In much the same way, I secure my memories through photographic images rendered in lines of my own hair, the physical remnants. I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments.you can view more of melanie bilenker's work on her website or at the sienna gallery.
