Swirling echoes of sinuous oak branches, watermarked leaf stains, the endless palette of the skies are her signature. Her background of over a decade as a flamenco dancer is also evident in the movement and composition of her paintings. Every aspect of her paintings moves in a choreographed flow, and the dancers are not only those with human limbs. What Stephanie tries to convey with her art is not simply fantasy, but the fantastic, the sense of wonder, that which is sacred.
Pui-Mun Law had an interesting path to becoming a professional artist. Although she had painted as a child and teen, and is a flamenco dancer, she earned a Computer Science degree and worked for a software company. After three years of working and then coming home late to paint, she decided to embrace art full-time and quit her job. (Probably a good move!)
Pui-Mun’s work has appeared in games and books published by HarperCollins, LUNA Books, Green Ronin, and others. She has also authored three books on fantasy watercolor painting (Dreamscapes, Dreamscapes: Myth & Magic, and Dreamscapes: Magical Menagerie).
It’s obvious that Pui-Mun Law is influenced by Nature, mythology, and folklore. I love looking at the dynamic motion of her paintings. I can’t describe her appeal any better than her own artist statement (the quote at the top) and to present her lovely compositions this month. Please visit her homepage and DeviantArt page.
