Welcome to the Women in Fantasy Illustration interview series. I am interviewing a selection of women who work in the Fantasy Illustration Industry. You will find the links to more interviews at the bottom of the page.
I’m very pleased to share with you today’s interview with Heather Hudson. Some of you may know her from her work on Magic The Gathering, but let’s get right to it. Enjoy!
Here’s a little artistic inspiration for my fellow fairy fans.
1. Arthur Rackham (1867 – 1939) regarded as one of the leading illustrators for the ‘Golden Age’ of illustration, is perhaps one of the most well known fairy artists. He was born in London as one of 12 children and began studying art at the age of 18 at the Lambeth School of Art in London. He’s a common source of inspiration for many current fantasy artists and for good reason. He worked mostly in ink and water colors.

Happy Summer Solstice everyone!
My latest piece is based on the Danish tradition of the Summer Solstice celebration named Sankt Hans. It is a dedication to the memory of all the women who lost their lives during the witch hunts of the church, with an added touch of deliberate phoenix symbolism. I hope you like it.Please click image to see larger version.
