Although the field of medicine has already revealed much (if not all) of what happens inside the belly of a pregnant woman, the work of Andrea Hows shows that there is just as much magic as there is scientific fact when it comes to such truths. That might not be her intention entirely, but it is hard not to look at Andrea Hows' paintings and not think of such things.
Based in New Zealand, Andrea Hows is a makeup special effects artist by day. Yet it is clearly her side work that is gaining a lot of notoriety for her portfolio. From picturesque visions such as the "African Scene Carmine Bee-Eaters" painting to more abstract and industrial work including 'Steam Punk,' Andrea Hows indulges a variety of inspiration on her pregnant subjects.
