“I’ve always been drawn to fantasy, whimsy, escapism, nature, dreams, etc.  Maybe it’s my overactive imagination, or perhaps it’s just my general dissatisfaction with a lot of the mundane world, but in my artwork I generally incorporate some sort of fantasy element into each piece.  Sometimes it’s addicting – I just can’t paint a girl – I have to add wings.  I can’t just paint a still life – I have to put a tiny mermaid in there.  I can’t paint a landscape without sneaking in a dragon.  Basically (even though I include a lot of realism in my work) I paint the world how I’d like it to look, rather than how it actually does look.” – Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith

Strangely Familiar - Carmen Keys

I love to create whimsical and fantastical art that speaks to the childlike part of us all that looks on small and simple things with wonder.  I am a Christian and my inspiration is always from the beauty, innocence, love, glory, and endless creativity of God.  His creation is a constant source of imagery for my paintings, as I love to draw things from the natural world like plants, animals, and people in a fantastical/imaginative way.  Imagination is a wonderful gift, and it has a way of connecting with others’ hopes and dreams like nothing else does. – Carmen Keys

I have enjoyed drawing & painting fantasy art for many of years.  Especially the women, Mermaids, Fairies, Princesses, Queens, Goddess, etc.  Fantasy art is full of magic & unlimited possibility and allows me as the artist to freely paint what is in my heart and soul and hopefully evoke joyful feelings toward those who view my work. – Meredith Estes

Fantasy Art ideas can arrive in may different ways during the day so keep your eyes peeled for them because just yesterday I was looking at this person and thinking to myself “How interesting that person is!” and as it turned out I was really looking at three people who were standing really, really close to each other.  So now I HAVE to go to my studio and make that mistake that my mind thought it saw “Three people who are really only ONE.” The middle person will only have a nose, mouth, torso and wings of course. Poor little middle person, he can only fly, eat and smell the people next to him.  Kind of funny/sad…..but that is what I think fantasy is made from. Reading things wrong, misinterpreting what you see, hearing something that others don’t hear and letting it happen – then quick write it down before you forget. Then go look for more because reality might in. – Carie S

Fantasy art has no limits.  The subject doesn’t have to be real or even believable, so I’m free to paint whatever I can imagine. – Tiffany A. Toland

As an artist, I love to create fantasy fairy tale treasures for the child in each of us. I feel fantasy artwork— as well as possessing visual richness — comes deep from the imagination.  My goal as a fantasy artist is to bring life back into stories from long ago, reinventing and interpreting fairy tales in way that showcases a more modern feel, while still keeping that gothic and somewhat primitive twist. Which in my eyes is more visually appeal to today’s fantasy art collector. – Philippe Fernandez

I don’t  think I’ll be very good at explaining why I love Fantasy Art. Something to do with magic and myths and symbols and the complete freedom to imagine or conjure up anything you want.
I think it’s like comic books where if you’re hooked on them, there’s no going back and no walking away. You just are a comic book geek, and it’s the same for Fantasy. The wonderful people I meet because of my love of Fantasy art has been the coolest part of it. They are the best! (even the ones I scrap with in the forums). – Mia Bailey Hopper
