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.

    I love bats, this is perfection in everyway, just gorgeous!! :)

  • Thanks Ming. I have bats in my back yard, which help get rid of the mosquitoes, but they are not nearly as large as the fruit bats I’ve seen in captivity. I really love the faces of the fruit bat though. They are so expressive looking.
