About this piece:
According to greek myth, the god Apollo fell in love with a beautiful mortal, Daphne, who was cursed to forever reject love. This endless pursuit left Daphne begging to be saved so the gods transformed her into a laurel tree as an escape. From then on Apollo wore a laurel wreath made from the leaves of his beloved Daphne. In his honor, victors of the Pythian Games were crowned with a gold laurel wreath. In my piece, I wanted to depict the etherial beauty of Daphne engulfed in the laurel leaves that she becomes.
About this artist:
I work as a graphic designer in Rochester, and freelance illustration and fine art in my spare time. I love stepping outside my comfort zone by working in different mediums, but my current favorite is watercolor.
