Magical Creatures

Baby Minmy, Gouache & color pencil

In the world of Wolliy there a many different species of animals, some similar to the ones we see here on our planet and others are more mysterious with peculiar traits and possibly magical powers. A baby Minmy is by nature sweet and gentle, only 1 foot tall. As they begin to mature they can grow up to 200 feet tall. This height depends on the physical space in which they are given to roam. The smaller the space the smaller they will remain.

Have you ever wondered what sort of mysterious happenings take place in the Florida swamp lands? I wonder all the time because one of the things that makes the state of Florida unique is that due to the weather it is the home to a highly diverse and extensive population of plants and animals. Including book fairies who meet in hollowed-out ancient Cypress trees and fill them with books.

Maria arrives at a mysterious island after being stranded for days. She cautiously inches closer to this floating land to take a rest from her long journey.

Sometimes I plan pieces from beginning to end. Other times I find them while playing and moving my paint brush around the paper.

The new piece “Journey to Water” was  a piece I “found” and I slowly tinkered away at it for brief moments at a time.

I keep finding inspiration for color palettes and textures while taking walks by the ocean and the park.
