Influenced by Byzantine iconography, as well as art nouveau, and folk art, THE MESSENGER depicts a hummingbird seemingly whispering a female / madonna / goddess-like figure’s ear.

In many mythologies world-wide, birds are seen as messengers of the gods.

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.
