Gothic and Fantasy Artists

Ann Stokes is one of the premiere artists of gothic and fantasy. Her portfolio and pictures of tattoos may be found at http://www.annestokes.com/

In the fantasy realm I also love Michael Parkes http://www.michaelparkesgallery.com/ and Boris Vallego http://www.imaginistix.com/gallery_store.cfm . They have both inspired me with their drawings of powerful female figures. Toward the end of writing "The House on Black Lake" I began to move into elements of fantasy.  I find myself drawn to both  gothic symbols and fantasy as they expand how we view nature and humanity, and most importantly protray women, and their interaction with men and wild mammals in a manner that is supremely sensual, exotic and powerful.
