The Magical World of
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law is a freelance artist, whose work consists of fantasy, the otherworld, and the surreal. She has been illustrating since 1996. Stephanie graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1998 with a double BA degree in Fine Arts and Computer Science
Most of her inspiration comes from mythology and legend, ranging through various cultures -- Roma (Gypsy), Celtic, Greek, Roman, Indian, and Chinese. It began with an early interest in Greek and Roman mythology, and as she grew older, she began to explore tales of other cultures, beginning with a desire to know more about the culture of her own background, the Chinese. She has also been greatly influenced by the art of the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, and Surrealists, along with current popular fantasy artists. What she tries to convey with her art is not simply fantasy, but the fantastic, the sense of wonder, and that which is sacred. As far as technique goes, her usual media include pencil, pen & ink, intaglio printing, watercolor, acrylic, and digital (Photoshop). Her preferred medium at this time is watercolor.
In addition to painting into the wee hours of the night, Stephanie dances Flamenco at any spare moment, plays piano, and burrows through her books like a true bookworm. Influences from her music and dance are also scattered through her art, for she finds inspiration for art and images in everything around her.
