Art with a Tale to Tell: Works by Carmanda

The Balagan Beast

In my paintings, drawings, and writing I attempt to convey worlds of dark whimsy, to create the sort of creatures, places, and characters you can find at the crossroads of the familiar and the strange.  Turn one corner and you’ll find yourself staring into the teeth of a grinning monster from the shadows of the id, turn the next and you’ll be greeted by a happy fox eating a stack of pancakes.

It’s a strange sort of land, but if you’re the kind of person who chafes in the bindings of reality and finds yourself dreaming of other worlds, I think you’ll fit in just fine.  This is a place for daydreamers and storytellers to meet characters and creatures who do not exist.  Some of them live in my head.  Others, perhaps, live in yours.

Thank you for visiting my weird little world.  I hope you enjoy your stay!
