Mystery McCarthy
Lives and works in Victoria, BC, Canada


Painting is the key to the secret garden, a doorway into a magical and mysterious place. My aim is to evoke a sense of mystery and magic using the medium of oil paint. While mainly using a palette consisting of natural earthy hues, I paint landscapes with dark themes, sometimes including people, creatures, or otherworldly beings, demonstrating that within the landscape of the natural world, there is mystery and magic everywhere, even where it is least expected, and through the pairing of dark with light, there is the exploration of the mysterious and beautiful.
