Josephine Wall, Painting

Josephine Wall 

Josephine Wall (born May 1947 in Farnham, Surrey) is a popular English fantasy artist and sculptor. Her paintings are influenced and inspired by Arthur Rackham, surrealist artists such as Magritte and Dalí, and the romanticism of the pre-Raphaelites. From childhood Josephine has had a passion for light and colour, fantasy and visual story telling. Much of the inspiration for her mystical images comes from her close observation of nature and her interest in its preservation. Though she often strives to impart a message in her scenes, she also hopes to inspire in her audience a personal journey into the magical world of their own imagination. Josephine Wall works mostly with acrylic paint, which allows her to paint quickly, and to create many textured and colourful effects. Her paintings are so rich in details and the colors she uses are so yummy, it's impossible not to get transposed to this new world she so vividly paints.
