I’ve already done an artist showcase of Kuniko Y Craft, my favorite speculative artist. But for my Wyrd & Wonder week three theme of ‘treasure,’ I wanted to showcase her again, because I think her dreamy paintings sparkle with gorgeous jeweled details.
For anyone wondering where her inspiration comes from, all of these images except Briar Rose were made specifically for covers of Patricia McKillip’s beautifully lyrical books, which paint worlds and stories just as wonderful as Craft’s art. The painting subjects and details correspond to the stories. Give McKillip a try: she does “small” fairy tale fantasy.
