Inspired by her bond with dogs, birds and her connection with nature Crowdog creates intricate and beautiful stippling illustrations that are both whimsical and endearing.
The influence of the late 19th century in Crowdog's work is indisputable. Her style is very art nouveau. Female figures, sight hounds and birds take centre stage surrounded by ornate floral patterns, elongated curves and whiplash lines, signature elements of the Victorian style.
Crowdog's illustrations are created in watercolours, stippling, graphite pencil and sometimes oils. Traditional mediums that reflect the 19th century influences and add depth to the narrative of the artwork.
I am drawn to the artists attention to detail and the intricate patterns in each illustration. Crowdog's art is nostalgic for years gone by, something that is both interesting and appealing to me.
