Maranda Byrn - "David"


Maranda Byrn is a local, Phoenix artist just starting her art career.

"I work primarily as a printmaker but I also dabble in watercolor and illustration. 'David' comes from a scene in the movie 'American Werewolf in London' in which the main character is having nightmares about his transformation into a horrifying creature. To me this scene represents fear of the worst parts of ourselves and maybe even the desire to let the dark side out. Just a little bit. Most of my work is focused on plants and animals, so this was really a chance to channel that side into something terrifying."
