|Josephine Wall at work|
|The English born artist Josephine Wall
(who resides in an English southcoast suburb of Poole, Dorset) specialises
in mystical and fantasy paintings. She often strives to impart a message in her scenes, she also hopes
to inspire in her audience a personel journey into the magical world of their own imagination.
Josephine works mostly with acrylic paint, which allows her to paint quickly, and to create many textured and colourful effects. She has been influenced and inspired by the illustrative talents of Arthur Rackham, the surrealism of artists such as Magritte and the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites. This combined with her own imaginative ideas, has led to wide and varied range of work.
"The art of painting is more than a career to me," she says. "It is an all consuming obsession and a love of color and form. In fact, if I am away from my easel for too long I become restless and anxious to paint again."
Josephine is also an accomplished sculptor and has created a number of unique figurines. Using natural stone found locally, various modelling materials and semi-precious stones she creates models that, when painted, challenge the viewer to find the point where the stone ends and the figure begins.
