Dancing between the worlds artist Katie Lennon has always been fascinated by tales of myth, and of worlds beyond our normal perception. Through various media she shares her vision of Faerie, or the Otherworld, with the beings of this world. To take a step into her world, where enigmatic oil paintings and block prints brim with myth and magic, where faery sculptures are poised, ready to take flight, where faerie luminaries cast enchanted shadows and illuminate an unseen world, and where dance transports you to another realm, is take a step beyond the mundane to a place where magic is possible.
