Isabella Kelly-Ramirez creates surreal fashion illustrations using fragments of found images. After layering a variety of portraits together to create collages, the artist's finished works are chic and conceptual to say the least.

Isabella experiments with vibrant hues and often gives her collages oversized features, sculptural tresses and whimsical outfits that are reminiscent of those designed by iconic couturiers like Christian Dior and Hubert de Givenchy.

Based in Santa Barbara California, Isabella Kelly-Ramirez is a UCLA graduate who draws inspiration from popular culture. The artist is known to reference bright cosmetics and textures in her works and manages to create fashion illustrations that are unlike the traditional style sketch. Her photo collages are nostalgic and will captivate their viewer while celebrating fashion's element of whimsy.
