DeathMau Studios


DeathMau Studios is the creative space of artist Trissa Tilson.  Here you will find Trissa's own take on nature, mythology, modern botanical art, horror art, the occult and whatever other strange things that might inspire her. Using a blend of ink, watercolors, pigment powders, acrylic paints and basically whatever art supplies she can get her hands on; Trissa creates vibrant images that remind us all of one thing:  The subject matter doesn't need to be pretty for the art to be beautiful.


About the Artist

I draw because I have to.  Art is a compulsion, a drive that I can’t shake.
It has been this way since as far back as I can remember. My family jokes that I was born with a crayon in each hand;
this is probably not too far from the truth
Simply put, art makes me happy. Creating art is even better.

Inspiration seems to strike at the most random of times.  Listening to a song, brushing my teeth, reading a book, laying in bed in the middle of the night with my thoughts racing.  Smells, colors sounds all form images in my head that sink their teeth in and won’t let go until the thought is formed on paper.

My latest inspiration for my works is the stark balancing act that is life and nature.  Nature, and the human condition, is at once beautiful and horrifying.  I suppose that is the main theme I am trying to portray with my work:  A thing doesn’t need to be pretty to be beautiful.
