Amy Brown resides in the Pacific Northwest with her family. As a child, her interest in Faeries sprouted when she was introduced to the works of Arthur Rackham, Brian Froud and Alan Lee. Movies like The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and Legend played large parts in developing Amy’s love of fantastical tales and mystical creatures. Over the years, various artists, books and films from the past and present added inspiration to her growing imagination and continue to do so.
Amy began her Faery art career in 1992 when she started work at a gallery called Festival of Art. There she learned about color, design, framing techniques, layout and various art techniques. She was surrounded by various types of art on a daily basis and read every art, printing, framing and business article available in the monthly magazines that came to the gallery. Festival of Art is where Amy displayed and sold her first Faery painting after her boss, Shawn, asked her to paint a picture for an empty frame she had lying around the gallery. As months progressed, Amy devoted more time to Faery paintings and began selling in the gallery, local shops, and street fairs.
