The promise “I create Women in Fantasy that inspire Women in Reality” stands guard over the strong scarred face of a warrior woman on her portfolio site. Drawing from lifelong passions of mythology, fairy tales, women’s studies, and the sacred feminine the artist Cassandre Bolan showcases the beauty of strong diverse women who flaunt their hard-won confidence, their agency, and above all - break the rules. She believes that "if you can see it you can be it" and wants to create a culture that inspires women and girls. Cassandre lives between Dubai and the US and has worked for clients such as Cartoon Network and Fantasy Flight Games, been a 2014 Illustrators of the Future award winner, and was featured in ImagineFX magazine. She loves painting book covers, trading cards, and her personal series of gender-swapped greek gods, but above all she loves writing and illustrating her own original Femythist children's books.
