Coriander Shea was a kid of the 80's and a very creative, forceful, and "free-spirited" one at that; her parent's book collection bear the ever-lasting crayon-laden results of her initial artistic meanderings.
All throughout her childhood years, Coriander was always artistically inclined and that creativity took its form through visual art as well as singing, acting, and being a general pain in the butt. Coriander became heavily influenced by faery art while she was still in high school. Soon after, she became enamored with the world of Heavy Metal magazine and discovered the amazing and awe-inspiring work of her greatest mentors to date, Luis Royo as well as the work of Dorian Cleavenger and gothic artist Joseph Vargo.
In college, Coriander's artistic process was furthered nudged and refined from the incredible Art Dept. staff of Mansfield University. It was during these four years that she believes she really came into her own skin as an artist and spiritualist. She was also introduced to the art of gothic pewter company, Alchemy Gothic that served to be incredibly and deeply inspiring to her.
