Imaginative and ethereal, Catrin Welz-Stein Artwork gives the traditional portrait a completely different dynamic. Using elements of classic imagery, which gives her collection a vintage style, the artist also infuses her own special blend of the strange and surreal into all of her works.

She blurs the lines between imagination and reality, blending her study of the female figure with natural motifs including various flowers, butterflies, birds and the scenery around them. The women are not just surrounded by beauty, they are part of it, physically entwined with their settings.

One literal interpretation of this concept is the woman with her back to the viewer—her bottom half is a snail shell submerged in water. Catrin Welz-Stein Artwork depicts the surreal beauty of women as part of their natural surroundings
