Aimee Stewart is the self-taught artist, photographer, and writer behind Foxfires Art. She has developed a method that mixes photography and digital painting to produce fantastic worlds in a style reminiscent of Maxfield Parrish.
She starts with a photographic image, often her own, then does her digital painting over it, producing whimsical images that come from her imagination.
Her artwork is available on many different products, from blank journals, tote bags, and gadget skins, to more unusual products like wall clocks. She even has cross stitch patterns available for those who want to stitch one of her intricate designs. (Note: I do not get any kickbacks for sharing her sales items; I’m just linking to them because I think they are cool and you might want one. I know I do!)
But she has more to offer than just her art for sale. Check out her blog, which is a collection of whimsical, magical, and funny images that give you a feel for her broad range of interests.
She has collected some interesting quotes about art. This one was my favorite:
The whales do not sing because they have an answer. They sing because they have a song. ~ Gregory Colbert
