Elementals are mythological beings that represent the four elements: earth, air, fire and water. Although Traditionally, each element is represented by the following:

gnomes, earth elementals
undines, water elementals
sylphs, air elementals
salamanders, fire elementals.

However, I decided to make my own elemental. The below artwork is my elemental for air. He is a sort of winged Celtic dragon creature, with interlocking limbs and spiral patterns on his skin to represent the wind.

Mixed media on Canson paper: acrylics, oil pastels, colored pencils, marker and liquid silver leaf. About 12 × 19 inches.

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.
