Two Sisters by Amy Brown

As beautifully put as Pablo Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

 

There is one artist in particular that has grown with her passion and flair for art instead of succumbing to the whims of adulthood. That is not to say that her paintings are childish–quite the contrary.

 

The maturity and skill that she presents in her paintings far surpasses many; her creativity and imagination really shines in her work — this is something most of us lose along the way.

 

 

Temptations by Amy Brown

Amy Brown‘s work has been around for some time now. Brown started painting her unique Faeries in 1992 while working at a small art gallery.

 

The spark began when her boss asked her to fill an empty frame that had been sitting around and when asked what she should paint, her boss replied, “I don’t know, paint a Faery or something.”

 

Soon her work started selling like crazy. Brown described the next events on her blog,

 

 

“The years shoved their way past me and I kept my head down; painting, painting, painting and not paying much attention to the rest of the world unless I absolutely had to. It was like the Faeries had taken control of me and were pushing me to paint their portraits and perhaps to let the world know they are watching.”

 

Little Wolf Sister by Amy Brown

Perhaps what is so unique about Brown’s faeries is the characteristic depth and emotional glances that are so blatant and relatable, that even those not fond of faeries are drawn to her work. The characters cry out for attention with beautiful and whimsical lines and telling detail.

 

Brown’s work can be found in a multitude of places, but the most suitable way to get her best work is through her website or her Etsy account. if you enjoy her work, be sure to follow her on Facebook  to see updates and new prints available on your feed!
