Mythical Goddesses Inspired by Folklore Illustrated in Surreal Settings

Enchanting Illustrations by Katrina Taule

Based in Quezon City, Philippines, illustrator Katrina Taule creates colorful portrayals of mythical goddesses in surreal settings. Using a combination of hand-drawn and digital illustration, Taule’s flowing lines and expressive colors showcase her impressive skillset in fantasy illustration. Some appear to take inspiration from the Art Nouveau movement, while others have a more contemporary feel. Focused around femininity and nature, her work is often divided into series, which explore multiple aspects of a central theme.

The Tea Project, for example, features beautiful women in surreal, fantasy worlds, who seem to personify different flavors of tea. In one particular piece titled INFUSE, the subject appears to brew tea from a magical guitar-like instrument. In another series—titled Enchantment—Taule explores “female enchantment in myth and folklore,” which is expressed in images like VOYAGE, where a princess-like heroine rides upon a majestic swan.
