Women in the art world have come a long way; but unfortunately, there is still more work to do. According to Artnet, even today female artists make up just two percent of the art market. And many institutions and auction houses still mostly cater to male artists. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to connect with talented female artists and support their work.

Known for her portraits, Seattle-based artist Olga Shvartsur has also begun experimenting with other styles. We're particularly in love with her abstract alcohol ink paintings, with their soft and delicate layers of color.
Russian photographer and painter Anka Zhuravleva currently lives in Portugal, where she creates her surreal fantasy images. Inspired by classical art, her work tells a strong narrative.
Anna Rose Bain
Oil painter Anna Rose Bain draws on classical roots while infusing her paintings with her own experiences. She often paints women and children in moments of bonding, joy, and intimacy.
New York-based artist Beverly Brown worked for many years as a photographer before trading in her camera for paintbrushes. Passionate about watercolors, she often captures the magical buzz of New York City in her paintings.
Fine art and experimental photographer Dorit Fuhg uses her camera to capture the essence of her subjects. Each photograph is filled with moody emotion, as she explores the world around her.
Swiss artist Priska Wettstein doesn't like to define herself strictly as a photographer. Inspired by the Yukon landscape in Canada, where she now resides, she uses her photographs as a canvas and paints them in Photoshop.
Brazilian-American artist Patricia Ariel merges human figures with expressionist abstracts in the hopes of blending reality with the immaterial. Primarily focusing on the female figure, she views her work as a look at the female experience according to her own vision of femininity.
