Kentucky-born artist Kathleen Lolley finds inspiration in nature. According to her website, Lolley enjoys creating scenes where “critters try to break the spell of day to day heartbreak and giant owls return to their nest with only dreams." Her art is filled with fantastic creatures that look as though they belong in a classic fairy tale. Her choice of colors all lend to her work having a folk-like quality.
"Fairy tales are really gruesome and dark, which you realize as you get older,” she says. “I like that to be a subtle and underlying truth that appears in my work.”
