There’s something quite charming about fairy tale illustrations done well. Kate Baylay finds the right balance between whimsical, symbolic, and serious. Her work is “at once both dark yet almost deceptively decorative. It springs instantly from the page, with accurate inspiration from the ‘Golden Age’ illustrators immediately impressing the viewer." (from her website). Her illustrations feel just right for the subject matter, blending tradition and innovation to create her unique voice.
