Sketches of ornaments painted

Illustration for Andersen’s story “The Tinderbox” .
Adrienne Kammerer’s exquisite graphite drawings depict an ongoing narrative exploring the history of magic set in a fictitious past. Through beautifully rendered figurative portraits and environments, Kammerer intuitively combines historic folklore with documented and imagined instances of magic, mythology and the occult. Drawing influence from the fear and superstitions rooted in childhood, Kammerer’s images conjure memories of the past while offering a subtly dark humor indicative of their present existence. Adrienne Kammerer is a self taught artist hailing from Burlington, Ontario. Currently residing in Toronto.
