Marie Lavau illustration

Possibly my most favourite American Horror Story lady: voodoo queen Marie Lavau. I spent a bit longer on this watercolour and ink illustration… especially the hair!

American Horror Story, Marie Lavau drawing

Actress Angela Bassett is just gorgeous (have you seen her arms!?) and she doesn’t seem to age at all. Also, did you know Marie Lavau is real? Born in 1794, she was a very influential New Orleans lady. As a hairdresser and voodoo practitioner she had a multiracial following and rumor has it that sheย excelled at obtaining inside information on her wealthy patrons. To extort money perhaps? What do you reckon?

  1. Thank you so much! Planning on doing all the girls too. I’d say I’d do you a header for your site, but it looks amazing already ๐Ÿ˜‰
