A fiery-tempered bull in shades of red, gold, bronze and brown

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.

    This is beautiful – the flow, the circular lines, the color…wow.

  • Thanks very much Selkie
    This is only a smaller picture. I think I may try something like this again for a larger artwork (I feel a bit compressed working on smaller sizes but needed one to fill a smaller space for a show).

    Great expression. This has the feeling of a fresco to me.

  • Thank you. This is a scan of the artwork, which didn’t quite come out as vivid as the actual artwork, but it gives the idea of the drawing. The drawing was made with colored pencils and oil pastels and some marker. Some of the texture was made with a box cutter (I normally use an exacto knife but I couldn’t find mine and got impatient)
