This is a digital print of an original illustration created in gouache. Her series of underwater monsters reveal fantastic creatures rising from the dark depths - they're some of our favourite images from benconservato, and we recently gave away an original Sea Monster painting as part of the Indie Avalanche of Prizes held at the December 2009 Finders Keepers Markets in Sydney.
Printed on 100% recycled 300gsm card with archival inks, signed and dated by the artist.

Emma Kidd brings intriguing characters to life in her original artworks, goccos, postcards & prints. She has an incredible portfolio and we are thrilled to offer a selection of her works for sale. In many of her pieces, we see portraits of monsters - curious & playful, strange & shy. At other times, we see characters in their environments - different imaginings of the natural world, or darker, more sinister spaces where twisted tales are unfolding.
Emma Kidd is an Australian artist, illustrator, printmaker, photographer who spends most of my time creating things. The name "benconservato" refers to "well preserved" in Italian.
