Unicornus Divinus

Unicornus Divinus

“I appear to those seeking hope.

Sometimes, one can only see the light,

when there is some semblance of darkness present.

There is wisdom to be found in contrast,

allowing one to receive the gifts from both.”


~ Kim McElroy

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    You may have heard of sun halos or sun dogs, but have you heard of sun unicorns? The sun unicorn appears on the edge of a storm cloud. These clouds contain millions of tiny ice crystals. When rays of light from the sun are cast at a precise angle, the light aligns within these crystalline structures to create a magical event. The crystals refract, splitting the light, and reflect, glinting light off their surfaces. Since they are oriented and positioned at that moment to your unique point of view, only you will be able to see the sun unicorn appear. The result is a spontaneous incarnation of Unicornus Divinus, a being with the power to restore hope to the human heart.

    This original pastel, created in 1994, is one of three pieces commissioned by Lenox China for a collector’s plate series titled, “The Magic of the Unicorn”. Unicorns are one of my most beloved subjects, but only comprise a few of my works to date. This original returning to the market is a rare opportunity for a collector to acquire an original from the period when I was emerging into my skill.

PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.

 

Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide

 

 

Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks
