Art by Anita Inverarity
Anita’s distinctive style echoes folkloric and art nouveau aesthetics. She weaves a magical fairy-tale narrative throughout her intricate, yet bold ink drawings. Interests and themes which run through Anita’s art language include Folktales, Fairy Stories, Mythology, Nature and Earth Magic. You will find beautiful costumes on etheric maidens in mysterious moonlit gardens filled with crystals and all manner of characters and creatures. The work invites you to look closer and enjoy the detail and ornamentation.
Original work is traditionally crafted using pen mediums on paperboard. Gallery works are custom framed to a high standard and finish. You can also find a substantial portfolio of giclée reproductions here, along with greeting cards and colouring packs.
In 2020, Anita published her first Oracle Deck with US Games. Signed Artist/Author editions of “Universal Folk Oracle” are available here when in stock.
