if your like me and grew up reading fairy tales, watching disney movies and patiently waiting each year for the wizard of oz to roll around you'll relate and appreciate anne-julie aubry's digital prints and paintings. i am enamored w/ the whimsy in anne-julie's work. her work has two sides; dark and whimsical. both are equally as adorable and very sweet. there is a magical quality to her work that makes me want to visit her subjects in their dark forests and drink tea w/ them and sing w/ the birds. perhaps that's just me, but her paintings really bring me back to being a little girl when i believed the world was full of magic, glitter and ruby red slippers , not a bad place to be really.
anne-julie was recently featured as a spotlight artist on illustration mundo, and as one of the 16 female illustrators (along w/ other ladies i love, ali j and catherine campbell, go girls!) on dominomag.com by blogger holly decker of decor8.
