Dictionary Terms Explained
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."

- Magical, happiness, joy
Fairies are typically portrayed as friendly little beings with wings. They're called many names, such as little people, wee ones, hill folk and nature spirits, and live in Fairyland as well as inhabiting trees and plants in the human world.
Legend has it that fairies have the ability to let humans see what they want them to see and they can take on the form that humans expect of them. They're said to be mostly friendly, happy creatures, although they can be mischievous and play tricks, and they enjoy singing, laughing and spreading joy and happiness.
Fairies have been famously represented in children's books, such as the Flower Fairy series, and almost every culture in the world has some reference to such beings.
Pictures and images of fairies signify a connection with the magical realm and can provide a touch of happiness, fun and joy into life.
