Author Bio
From childhood Josephine Wall has had a passion for light and colour, fantasy and visual storytelling. The life of a painter was clearly her destiny! Enchanting and detailed images cascade freely from her fertile imagination in an endless flow of ideas. 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.
