Sabrina Scott draws her inspiration from American mysticism, Western astrology and modern Wicca, creating pieces that highlight the magical qualities of the natural world. But she adds to her clean and intricate lines deliberate imperfections: stormy and bleeding watercolors that emphasize the power and unpredictability of nature.
Scott describes herself as "a professional illustrator and amateur herbalist," and her interest in plants and other woodland life has a clear influence on her illustrative work. On her portfolio site, she pairs each illustration with a work of mysticism or mythology-related text, such as Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces
, Dawn Bauman Brunke's Animal Voices, Animal Guides
and Michael Harner's The Way of the Shaman
. Those inspirations lend texture to what could otherwise be generically spiritual works. And Scott doesn't take herself too seriously that she won't make way for the occasional Pokémon. You can see more of her work in her portfolio
and on her blog
