Selina Fenech has been drawn to the world of fantasy and fairy tales since she was born in Australia in 1981. An avid reader as a child, her favourite stories were those of myth and magic, princesses and fairies. She soon learned she had a greater love than reading when she began spend countless hours staring at the illustrations in these books, ignoring the stories in words for preference of the stories told by the artworks. She would study each brush stroke, marvelling that any human hand could create such beauty. Having always enjoyed drawing, Selina began to draw her own ideas of fantasy inspired by the illustrations in her fairytale books, with goddesses, fairies and enchanted creatures, trying to capture the same magic they made her feel. Many years later, Selina's artwork has been warmly received by lovers of fantasy all over the world. Selina still resides in Australia, being self employed in painting her ideas of fantasy and selling merchandise lines of her magical artwork. She continues to strive to capture pure magic on paper.
