❀ ” I bring to you with reverent hands
the books of my numberless dreams.” ❀
~ W.B Yeats
My Real Life self was born in England and, after studying fine art and after a spell as a theatrical costumier, I became a professional illustrator, specialising in historical and children’s illustration.
Sometime in 2008 I tumbled down a rabbit hole into Second Life and became Freyja.
Since then, I’ve been fascinated by trying to recreate something of the enchantment and iconography of the myths and fairy story illustrations that have bewitched and influenced me since childhood, albeit sometimes a darker version.
The work you see here is illustrative, emotional, deeply personal, sometimes erotic, unashamedly romantic and draws on the stories of my Second Life. Stories of exploration, magic, love and loss.
:- sat·u·ra·tion \ˌsa-chə-ˈrā-shən\
1. The act of saturating or the state of being saturated. The act or result of making something very wet.
2. Vividness of hue; degree of difference from a gray of the same lightness or brightness. Also called intensity.
I’ve chosen to play on the definition of the word “saturation” to encapsulate two of my favourite reoccurring themes: colour and water.
I often find myself using the allegorical and transportive nature of water to reflect emotion. In a similar way, with the use of colour I hope to be able to convey, perhaps, an emotional and physical reaction. A visceral way to experience the stories I try to tell. I hope you enjoy them.
All my pictures are photographs taken in Second Life then painted and finished in Gimp.
