Illustrator Shares Sweet Moments of What True Love Really Looks Like

Relationship Illustrations Amanda Oleander Art

Los Angeles-based artist Amanda Oleander is known for her charming drawings “depicting life behind closed doors.” Intended to show what love looks like, her illustrations frequently feature intimate scenes inspired by her own life—namely, her loving relationship with her fiancé.

In these charming illustrations, Oleander offers an honest look at the couple’s everyday experiences. Often, the scenes are set in the home that they share, highlighting the beauty of simply being together. Whether spending the whole day as couch potatoes or having a quick smooch through a face mask, Oleander shows that every shared experience is special.

Though mostly starring her partner and herself, Oleander notes that the sentiment behind each scene is universal. “Most of my current illustrations are inspired by my personal love story with my fiancé,” she tells My Modern Met. “I illustrate our story and I have come to find by doing so I am also illustrating the love stories of thousands around the world. [It] is very nice to know how similar we all are no matter what language we speak or where we are from.”
