We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

A serpentine hippocamp (mythical chimera/sea horse) in shades of green and gold. Made as a thank you present for someone.

Original measures approx 12 × 19″
Created with oil pastels, colored pencils, gold and white paint, art pens on heavy textured green Strathmore artist paper.

Sadly the original artwork appears to have been lost in the mail when sent to its new home :(

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.
