This unique artwork depicts the Norse mythological creature Fenrir (or Fenris), a monstrous wolf creature that was the son of Loki the trickster god and a giantess. In this artwork, I depicted Fenrir as a wolf dragon form with a nod toward Celtic zoomorphism and knotwork.

Oil pastels, colored pencils, art pens, and paint pens on brown watercolor paper. Original measures 19 × 25″

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.
