Josephine Wall is a popular English fantasy artist and sculptor. She works mostly with acrylic paint, which allows her to paint quickly, and to create many textured and colorful effects. Her paintings are mainly influenced and inspired by Arthur Rackham, with lesser influences from surrealist artists such as Magritte and Dalí, and the romanticism of the pre-Raphaelites. This combined with her own imaginative ideas has led to a wide and varied range of work.
She lives contentedly with her husband at Wisteria Cottage’ where she works in a purpose built attic studio. The walls are covered with a huge wisteria, cascading gorgeous flowers – hand painted of course. Josephine is convinced that working under the pyramid shaped roof is a source of inspirational vibes, aiding her creativity! The rest of the cottage also displays her artistic nature, a woodland scene and butterflies in the kitchen, flowers and birds on the furniture and even more wisteria on the glass doors in the living room. Even the garden doesn’t escape her touch, as she likes nothing better than to spend time designing unusual features and creating an abundance of colour, with a slight bias towards a Victorian style.
