Stacey Fahey is an illustrator from Lakeland, Florida, who creates dreamlike landscapes and portraits out of her own experiences and memories.
According to the artist, she paints with watercolour and guache. It’s through these mediums that she’s able to let others see the magic she finds in everyday life.
For instance, a stroll through the park might seem mundane for many, but to her, it’s a walk through a fantastical place.
While Fahey is serious about painting, she finds a lot of her inspiration in music. This is apparent in her work – because it is full of movement, abstract shapes, and detail that draws the viewer in closer. Her compositions even include themes of actual music notes, written in music staves!
A painting of space fairy @sdupreebemis ! I painted this while listening to Eisley's new album which I love so much ?I went to their show last night and of course Sherri walked right by me and complimented my dress but I missed my chance to give her this print ?but my pal @johnfiorentino is delivering it for me!! (who is in @civilian_sounds on tour with eisley and their set was so awesome ?? so was the opening band @backwardsdancer.. it was such a good show!!) #eisley

Organizing my studio and finding 2014 art. I feel like I've been so focused on growing that I've lost certain elements of myself as an artist. But it's fun to find ways to incorporate those lost parts of myself into my new art ?!! Trying to find a balance of mastering painting techniques, expressing ideas, and finding your own unique voice (while also always trying to be improving) is challenging.. but making the same art every single day sure would be boring ?
