About the Artwork
Allies Ahoy, acrylic and ink
Allies Ahoy is the backdrop design for the same children's play done by Taproot Theatre. This artwork was inspired by the French painter Rousseau's many jungle scenes, and it was painted using acrylic paints.
I am an artist and designer. I love to create illustrations and designs of fictional characters and places in a realistic, but illustrative style. Believable, but not quite real, such as the decorative curlyque waves and simplified landscape in Alloys Ahoy. I have taught art, painted murals, designed sets, costumes, and props, and created other commissioned art works. I work in pen and ink, acrylics, and am exploring digital illustration and painting.
