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.

    He’s a cutie and I love the his spirally tale. Cats always seem to be involved in some kind of conundrum (such a great word).

    You are so very uniquely stylized that I believe your work to be the most original I have seen in a very long time. AND they are appealing and wonderful. Keep them coming!!!!

  • You say the sweetest things Jerry lol. Anyway, this is a Christmas present so I was trying to think what would appeal to this particular person.
