Wow! Artist: Aubrey Learner

Oh my goodness, I am in love. San Franciscan artist Aubrey Learner has an MFA in fine art and a BS in biology, and the combined loves mashup to create something truly stunning:


watercolor on paper 23×38 inches


watercolor on paper 17.75×30.25

black chemise

ink, graphite on paper 36″x24″

milk and honey

watercolor on paper 33×41 inches


Acrylic and ink on paper 48.75×45.25 inches

Her intricate drawings include insects, silk, candy, pins, lace and parasites. They arouse both disgust and desire; smaller perhaps disturbing bits making up a beautiful, larger whole. More images in her online portfolio, here. Ugh, she is so good!!

An earthwormy-kind of mood
