Statement: Aria Fawn, AKA ShePaintswithBlood is a self-taught artist from Colorado.
She started drawing as soon as she could hold a crayon and gradually became more and more obsessed by art, as she grew up an only child and lived many years in the country with mostly animals for company.
Her art is inspired by dreams, nature and nostalgia as well as all the many furry, scaly and crawling beasts she still lives with.
In her watercolors, she favors the portrayal of ghostly animals walking over the bodies of sleeping skeletons. Massive crescent moons made of salt and a swirling spiral of skies.
She is most fascinated by the beautiful and violent balance of wild things and the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
