Out of the vastness of space a sequence
of events beginning with the tiniest of life forms
ignites the spiral of evolution and the miracle
of life is created! From fish, plants, animals and
birds the path eventually leads to mankind.
A pool of life-bringing water cascades from
the treetops to form a pathway to the bright
and hopeful future - a future filled with exploration
and adventure, rich with learning and love.

The universe welcomes into its arms
the new little spirit

Josephine Wall - Painter
Josephine Wall was born in Farnham, Surrey, England. Her work now is receiving worldwide acclaim inlcuding a nomination at the Arty Awards (the artworld equvalent of the oscars). She works mostly with acrylic paint and has been infuenced by the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, surrealist artists like Salvador Dali and the illustrative work of Arthur Rackham.
From childhood she has had a passion for light and colour, fantasy and visual story telling. Much of the inspiration for her mystical images comes from her close observation of nature and her interest in its preservation. Though she often strives to impart a message in her scenes, she also hopes to inspire in her audience a personal journey into the magical world of their own imagination.
"The art of painting is more than a career to me," she says, "it is an all consuming obsession and a love of colour and form. In fact, if I am away from my easel for too long I become restless and anxious to paint again."
