  • Railfan
    Railfan
    by Theresa Mather


    Railfan was created in late 2005 as the cover for the Chattacon program book in January 2006. The original is roughly 6 1/2" x 8", acrylic on clayboard. Chattacon is held each year at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, a hotel built around the old downtown train station. Mixing dragons and trains doesn't come naturally - but I have a friend who is a train fan, who stalks them with his camera, and I speculated on how a dragon railroad fan might express his interest!

    Theresa Mather 's artwork explores a wide range of the fantasy bestiary, from traditional fauna like dragons, gryphons and unicorns to unusual versions of the pets lurking within our own homes, keeping their true nature hidden from us. She studied art at the University of California at Santa Cruz and the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, and now resides in the red rock country of southern Utah, where she enjoys hiking and exploring when she isn't painting or drawing. Her website can be found at www.rockfeatherscissors.com.
