The Fantasy And Faerie Art

Linda Ravenscroft


Copyright © 2002 Linda Ravenscroft

Linda Ravenscroft is a self taught British artist who's work has been published in many forms throughout the world. She lives with her husband, young daughter and numerous pets in the beautiful county of Cheshire. Her home is situated near a small wood, which is a constant source of inspiration. Linda uses many mediums for her paintings, her favourite being watercolour.

"My inspiration comes from many sources. I rely mostly on my dreams and inner feelings as I have done since I was a child, although now as an adult with more experience of the world. Influences from artists of the past and present together with my love of nature instilled within me from an early age by my parents has always been an inspiration, together with tales of myths and legends and the mysteries of the supernatural and the unexplained.

The idea of the Faerie Folk or earth spirits, call them what you like, dates back as far as time itself, they represent the natural world we live in and whether you believe or not, they have a place in our modern day society, even more now than they ever did. It's time to look at our world and our feelings towards fellow man, and realise what damage we are doing. My paintings all have messages within them, they are very personal and sometimes quite deep and difficult to explain in words, so I try to express them in the only way I can. Most of my images are serine and benign, although we all have a darker more passionate side waiting to emerge.

After all we are only human" ............
