Amy Brown – Fantasy Artist

Amy Brown - MelancholyAmy Brown is an artist that became popular in the ‘90s and remains very popular today. Her work has been made into prints, greeting cards, T-shirts and figurines. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Amy Brown fell in love with the fey and used the forest and rivers of the Puget Sound as backgrounds for her characters.

Her website says that she took her inspiration from the “Dark Crystal and “Labyrinth”. While both of these films were not fine art per se, they were art unto themselves with the wild and fantastic fantasy creatures that were the Brian Children of Jim Hensen. These movies fired the imagination of many a Fantasy Artist and it is easy to see why Amy Brown found them to be so inspiring. If you are delving into creating your own Fantasy Art, it might be worth it to you to check out these two films.
