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.

    Wow, this just pops out right off the screen! You are so good with color and compostition, just AMAZING!!!!

  • Thanks! It looks better in person as you can’t see either the collage effect or the gold metallics from this scan. Of course, now my room is all covered with little orange flame scraps. lol.
