The Art of Stasia Burrington

Stasia Burrington’s women are dark haired, simple, and usually muted in color, which is often in stark contrast to her colorful flowers or butterflies that surround and adorn her subjects.  Emotionally-driven, her illustrations are beautiful and even when there is a sense of distress they seem strong, making her art carry a feeling of shared struggle rather than pain or defeatism.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Stasia has participated in a number of shows recently including several at Giant Robot 2Screaming Sky and The Oakland Museum of California.
