Yavanna has been a dear character to me since reading the Silmarillion for a class project almost 10 years ago. She is one of the Valor, a creator being of Middle Earth, in charge of the care of all things that grow.
I've made several attempts already to illustrate her and this is the third. I have a feeling I will continue to illustrate her for years to come because to me she represents the wild creative. For her, anything is possible and that's a rather intimidating task as an artist. As I continue to grow artistically, so will my idea of her.
hello! I am a fantasy illustrator specializing in whimsical watercolors. Currently I work out of the American Southwest illustrating stories inspired by nature, folklore and mythology. My work has been shown in numerous published books as well as at galleries from coast to coast. Most of my free time is spent drawing monsters, chasing after bugs and romping through moss.
This is a gallery-quality giclée art print on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Each art print is listed by sheet size and features a minimum one-inch border.
