About this Artwork

Gaia Wildmane has this to say about this artwork:

This is my wedding gown. The photographer had an autowind camera and took photos while I spun in place. I selected a few and drew this in colored pencil.



About the Artist

This beautiful artwork was created by Lee Seaver-Lacey. She spent her formative years never knowing what state she was in that week, so she spent most of her time in her imagination. Her natural habitat is woodland and river banks.

Her alter ego, Gaia Wildmane, is a lot more attached to reality than she used to be, although she still talks to herself and gestures while walking. Gaia plays in Medieval re-enactment groups and explores Middle Eastern dance.

Influenced by the really old-fashioned fairy tales and her conversations with trees, fascinated with archetypes, forces of nature, and dancing naked by moonlight, Lee/Gaia often lets her art flow where it will and figures out what it means later.

She almost plays a variety of instruments, and plans to learn to almost play the bagpipes someday.

Commissions considered.

Her poem, Secret Sisters, also appears on this web site.

If you'd like to contact her for more information about her artwork, here's how to reach her:
