Friday Feature: Artist Penelope Dullaghan

Emily Dickinson Museum Poster
by Penelope Dullaghan


One astounding illustration artist that I love is the Penelope Dullaghan. It is hard to put my finger on what I like best about her work- but it might be the sense of space that she gives to her compositions.  The objects have breathing room much like how much Japanese art utilizes "negative space" or "ma." It gives her work an elegant quality. This space allows the eye to flow naturally throughout each piece. Lovely!

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
~Lao Tzu
