I really wanted to create a companion piece for my “Alice” featured in the past news. The ongoing “Through the Looking Glass” Changeling Artist Collective auction gave me that opportunity.

My blue caterpillar is based on a humble tomato hornworm. While I really enjoy high fantasy elements, sometimes I really want to emphasize the fantastic things in our everyday world, especially when it comes to children’s literature. I really love when they get a chance to look at ordinary things through infinite possibilities.

I also think most of us wrestle with a question of our identity at times. But few of us smoke a fly agaric mushroom hookah

Mariya has the exceptional ability to make fantasy more vivid and vibrant. I love the subtle texture and the outrageous detail and realism, as well as the simplicity of it.
