Mickalene Thomas is a New York artist who makes paintings that are composed of Rhinestones, acrylic, and enamel. In her art, Mickalene brings her vision of what it means to be a woman and illustrates the female beauty. Mickalene was inspired by various sources that ranged from the 19th Century Hudson River School to Edouard Manet, Henri Matisse, and Romare Bearden.

In her studio, Mickalene and her team work together to make these masterpieces. Mikalene’s team divides the work between themselves; One will do the painting while the others work on the rhinestone and other jobs. Every time Ms Thomas is going to make an art piece, she would first create a collage and make it huge. Not everything she makes is art pieces, she also does photography and sculpture. Mickalene has won multiple awards throughout her artistic career and definitely is an artist worth taking a look at.
