Artist Spotlight on the enchanting watercolor renderings of Wisconsin-based painter Meredith Dillman.

by Daniel Barron



Fairies, mermaids, and other magical creatures are given delicate life under the brush of Wisconsin-based painter Meredith Dillman. Originally from Minnesota, she favors inks and watercolors to realize her mythic visions that draw inspiration from Pre-Raphaelite artists, Japanese comics, and turn-of-the-century book illustration.


Says her bio:

Meredith graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a BFA degree in Illustration in 2002. Her work has since been published in instructional books and licensed for a variety of products and collectables. Meredith is the author and illustrator of the books Watercolor Made Easy: Fairies and Fantasy from Walter Foster and Fantasy Fashion Art Studio from Impact Books.


For Yay! LA’s Summer 2016 Yay! Legends Every Day series she interpreted the stop-motion film Coraline and the Studio Ghibli film The Secret World of Arriety.
