Artist Gesine Marwedel creates wonderful optical illusions with her body paintings.  Using masterful painting techniques in coordination with photography and lighting, she transforms beautiful women into landscapes and creatures.  In one image, she has created the illusion of a pink flamingo; in another, she has superimposed a desert landscape onto undulating curves.  A practicing occupational therapist based in Germany, Marwedel also works in more traditional and lasting mediums.
