Fairy Artists Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
There are many fairy artists out there, many very talented and skilled artists creating beautiful pictures and images in all sorts of media. It seems to me too that Fairy Art is not only a genre but to a certain extent also an industry; I have seen some very extensive websites with plenty of stuff to fall in love with and purchase.
My selections of the artists that I choose to present is a highly subjective selection from the contemporary fairy artists that I have come across browsing the internet, being guided only by my own sense of curiosity and beauty and attraction to certain styles and techniques.
Today I will present one of those artists that I have found interesting not only because I appreciate her actual works, but also because she have created her own tarot, a exquisitely beautiful deck.
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law has been drawn to and painted mythical beings and creatures since she was very young and has a background in programming software. She has been working with her art full time for some ten plus years and is represented in media, games and books and magazines Law’s portfolio of published work and list of clients also includes White Wolf (Changeling: The Lost), Precedence Entertainment (Wheel of Time collectible card game, Rifts collectible card game), HarperCollins (covers for The Demon Child Trilogy by Jennifer Fallon), Realms of Fantasy magazine, Carus Publishing Company (known for their magazines for elementary/junior high/high school readers such as Cricket and Cicada), Elemental Designer Games (ChessMage collectible card game), Skotos (Castle Marrach role-playing game), Alderac Entertainment Group (Warlord, Seventh Sea, and Legend of the Five Rings collectible card games), Talislanta, and Black Knight Games.
She is also a flamenco dancer which comes to expression in her art: you can tell she is a person very deeply aware of movement and choreography, there’s a fluidity and a sense of gracefulness in all that she does.
Like most fairy artists she draws her inspiration from mythology, legends and folklore and the Pre-Raphaelite – a group of seven English painters, poets and critics that formed a brotherhood in 1848. Their intention was to reform art wanting to bring it back to the abundance of detail, vivid and intense colors and more complex composition than was the case of the art of their time which they considered mechanistic and that had come into style after Raphael and Michelangelo.
Stephanie works mostly with watercolors, but also makes use of other techniques, such as pen and ink, acrylic and digital programs. She also makes figurines.
