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.

    Hey Lynnette I love cubism and this is truly an incredible monument to that style….well done!

  • thanks Ben! the rabbit sort of became cubist by accident. I wasn’t planning to do that but I just felt like the right thing to do when I was working on it.
