MY RECOMMENDATION:

One look at this book cover and I knew I had to read “Mystical Fairies.” It didn’t take me long to realize that the images created by Judy Mastrangelo would enthrall every young girl (or not so young girl).

The book was total eye candy!

But wait! It gets better. Behind the cover, I found pure magic. Poetry, prose, artwork, and delightful fairies. The colors and details captivated me. I imagined buying the book and framing the images, so their beauty could inspire me every day.

I love children’s books. Every time I read one, I remember back to when my kids and grandkids were little. They hung on each word I read and studied the pictures until they fell asleep. I can’t think of a better gift than a book for a developing young mind.

Step into the world of magical fairies. You’ll never want to leave! I received a pdf copy of this book from the author. After I read the book, I had to share it!

About the Author:

Judy Mastrangelo and “Mystical Fairies”

Most of my life I’ve been drawing and painting in all genres, from Realism, to Impressionism and Abstractionism. I paint a wide variety of subjects, but various forms of Fantasy have always been the closest to my heart. This includes my Fairy Tales, Myths, and New Age Art.

All of Nature is alive to me, and I try to show this in my paintings. I love the Greek and Roman Myths in which they personify Spirits of Nature, and so I enjoy painting Deities of Trees, Water, Earth, Air, Gods and Goddesses, etc.

I have always been inspired by great Artists throughout history, and regard them as my teachers. Some of my favorites are those of the Italian Renaissance, the Pre- Raphealites (I like John W. Waterhouse the most), and the Hudson River School of Landscape Painters. Maxfield Parrish is my favorite illustrator, and I feel that Sir Joseph Noel Paton is one of the greatest Fairy Artists. In my small way, I also enjoy continuing in the tradition of Beatrix Potter with her little animal people, and Cicely M. Barker with her lovely Flower Fairies.

I live happily with my Soul Mate and Husband Michael, a true Renaissance Man, who is a great inspiration to me. We live in a timeless Land of old-fashioned houses and gardens on the edge of a Mystic Woods, with trees that Arthur Rackham would have loved to paint.

I’ve taught Art, Modern Dance and Classical Ballet, and Drama to adults and children. I also created a Community Theater Group, presenting classical literature, including Fairy Tales and Shakespeare, on stage. At this time I have decided not to teach anymore and to devote myself solely to my Art Work. I always have been fascinated with the gracefulness of dancers, and often ask them to be models for my paintings.

My Art has been licensed in many fields, such as for prints and posters, wall coverings, puzzles, calendars, greeting cards, and embroidery kits, etc. I’ve illustrated several children’s books, including “Antique Fairy Tales”, “The Sandman and Other Sleepy Time Rhymes”, “Tales of Shakespeare”, and “Pollyanna”. I both wrote and illustrated my book “What Do Bunnies Do All Day?”, published by Ideals. Currently, I am writing and illustrating several new books on Fairies, Elves, Angels, etc.

I daydream about my paintings for a while before putting them on canvas. This preliminary technique of “Mind Painting” helps me to develop an imaginative Work of Art.
