BADDIE WINKLE

Personal Project

Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle became an internet sensation under the name "Baddie Winkle" at the age of 85. Her carefree and youthful personality is often characterized by a wardrobe full of bright colors, fun patterns, and eccentric accessories. Finding inspiration in this subject's free spirit, Jess digitally painted this portrait as a lighthearted personal project. By exploring Baddie Winkle's online presence, Jess developed this composition for her illustration.
