*AOY* = Artist of the Year
"Gradually the Faeries have evolved in meaning for me... something more than the typical definition of Faeries being winged girls flitting around in the woods or at the bottom of the garden. They are often wise, majestic and beautiful. Sometimes they are terrible and cruel. They embody grace, mystery, wonder and miracles as well as despair, trickery and desire. Wings can be a symbol of freedom, enlightenment and spiritual growth; or power and strength. Horns and antlers hint at ageless wisdom and grace in some Fae and malice and cunning in others. Feathers signify free spirits or a dark and mournful nature. In the Faery realm, all things become possible and not all is what it seems."

" In high school, his creative nature led him into the world of Dungeons and Dragons.  When he wasn’t creating art, he was playing with friends – which only fueled his imagination with more interesting characters and creatures to illustrate and bring to life".
"He started selling prints on his website and was asked to do some paintings for the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time TCG."
"Rob will continue to draw and breathe life into characters, monsters, and fantastical creatures for as long as they keep telling him their stories.  May the stories never die…"
Rob will be available all day to sketch your fairy portrait at this year's event!

Spring Fairy Festival- Making the mundane into magic since 2008!
Jody Bergsma, Bellingham WA
"Jody has a diverse painting style that has developed over many years and literally thousands of paintings. Her earliest works were charming children's illustrations that she sold at Northwest art shows to pay for her education.

Jody's watercolor technique is self taught. Her engineering degree is reflected in her compositions and demonstrates Jody's love of mathematics and geometry. She seemlessly blends these elements with her imaginative inner visions to create her unique style.

She is often asked about her use of aboriginal, native, and geometric symbols. Her ongoing studies introduced her to many ancient cultures and the beauty of their designs. By respectfully working with these images, Jody participates in the significance of our history and reintegrates their symbols into our modern culture."

Herb Leonhard was born in Munich, Germany but grew up in the United States. One of his earliest memories was of a series of German children's books beautifully illustrated by Fritz Baumgarten. This, along with a childhood spent within the pages of comics, inevitably led to a career as an artist with a love of many of the classic illustrators, both traditional and contemporary, including the Pre-Raphaelites, Maxfield Parrish, Alphonse Mucha, N.C. Wyeth, Brian Froud and Roger Dean.

Herb's over 25 year career as a professional illustrator and graphic designer has earned him both regional awards and local acclaim. He remains able to observe the natural world around us with a sense of wonder, and sees every subsequent painting and drawing as a new learning experience.

Melissa Dawn, Kent WA
Self-taught American artist Melissa Dawn began painting fairies after discovering fantasy art at a local fair, and gave up a full ride scholarship to law school to dedicate herself to improving her craft and bringing her visions to life. Her portfolio quickly expanded to include angels, bunnies and fairy cats. Melissa's whimisical cat paintings immediately captured the hearts of cat lovers around the world with their vivid colors, adorable expressions, and unique style. Today Melissa resides in Washington state, drawing inspiration from the beautiful scenery around her (and her four spoiled tuxedo cats!) to create paintings designed to brighten the viewer's day.

Alexandra Haley, Seattle WA
I am a self taught artist with a love of bright colors and exotic mediums. I first started drawing portraits of Johnathan Taylor Thomas at a very young age. My mother had given me a calender when I was 11 which was part of my inspiration. She has always been very supportive of my craft which has helped mold me into the person I am today. In high school I met a girl who now is very much like a sister to me and a big part of my life. She was really into anime and exposed me to a whole new world of talented Japanese artists. The first anime I ever watched with her was Sailor Moon. I fell in love with the art style, the eyes and hair drew me in immediately. After a while I went off in my own direction and melded my portrait knowledge along with this new found artistic talent which is what you see today.
I love drawing strong curvy women who have a commanding presence, if I have curves then why can't they? ^_^
