Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

    Beautiful choice in colours and design; I adore the greens, the pattern work, and the split tail. Rather than the impression of “Sea Dragon” I keep on envisioning a forest environment cradling this beauty, though none the less your beastie is wonderful!
    What mediums did you use?

  • Thanks for your comments and for taking the time to look at my sea dragon. In answer to your question, I used primarily oil pastels, but I also used some colored pencil, marker, and metallic gold, silver and white paints (via paint pen).

    Is there a Celtic art site on RB? We have to join if there is. Maybe you have already! If there isnt, lets make one!!

  • I was looking to see if there is one and I don’t see one. Maybe we should start one?
