Mary Lynn Skirvin

Mary Lynn Skirvin is an artist who considers herself a "generalist". Starting her career by making her very first sale to science fiction author Hal Clement back in 1975, she has since devoted the much of her life so far to exploring art like some people explore foreign countries. She enjoys discovering the tools of obscure techniques that often fall out of the perview of most artists, while continuing to hone her skills with the usual forms of painting and drawing.

No matter what style or technique she may try, she always comes back to center when she's drawing the "bitey things". The furred, feathered, clawed, fanged, horned, creatures of dream and nightmare that seem to have a personality all their own. They are her specialty. Some are funny, some are frightening, but all are uniquely hers.
