“Medyn is gifted with a color sense as savory as fresh fruit and an imagination capable of setting genetics soundly on its ear. She gives life to an astonishing wonderland of beasties, plants and totemic trees, part vegetable, part animal and part apartment house for a diminutive universe of creatures. At times her work superficially recalls such diverse artists as Paul Klee and Dr. Seuss. Yet her work is decidedly her own; it has remarkable ability to appeal to virtually every level of sophistication.” – Noel Suter, Metroland
“The frozen frolics of Gumby/Rousseau inspired Gardens of Eden, where the noble beasties cavort in perfect bliss amidst their idealized fantasy landscapes, set the premise for a light hearted, airy exploration of Medyn’s work.” – John Tarlton, Times Union
Her paintings tell stories about life set in landscapes made up of fantastical creatures and fauna.
