About Amy Brown's paintings
She began painting faeries in the early 1990s. While working in a small art gallery, her boss requested that she fill an empty frame. Amy painted a faery – the art piece sold immediately and her destiny began. Soon her art was selling at local shops and street fairs. Her passion for watercolor painting and love of the faery realm kept her immersed in creating her fantastical paintings. She
opened a website and began selling her originals online worldwide, and the demand for her art grew. Amy has created over 2,000 paintings and licensed dozens of products. Her artwork can be seen in many books, calendars, and websites and even products, which increases her popularity as more people are exposed to her work.
Amy describes faeries, as "… 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.”
About the Series
The series consists of six designs die struck in one ounce and five ounce .999 fine silver. Each one and five ounce design is available in proof, antique and colorized finishes. Artwork for the series includes: The Red Queen, Lady of the Forest, Second Cousins, Discovery, Wall Flower and Dragon Secrets. The standard reverse of the series is Dusk.
Premiering the series is The Red Queen. She is seen majestically strolling along with her mystical unicorn companion. A pair of antlers emanate from the crown of her head denoting her infinite wisdom. The unicorn and a small bird accompany The Red Queen as she traverses the Faery Realm holding an ornate scepter, which is a symbol of her authority. Large, wondrous wings rise from her back and trail behind her along with her flowing, matching dress. The Red Queen art was created in 2016.
The common reverse for all of the one ounce and five ounce rounds is Dusk. Dusk displays a Faery with large, graceful, feathered wings. Her long hair is flowing in the breeze as she peers out dreamily from her vantage point. Her upper arms are adorned with encircling bracelets. While Dusk is shown seated, it appears as though she could come up and off the surface of the coin at any moment. The background displays stars twinkling in the early evening twilight. The text Amy Brown Collection appears across the top rocker of the coin with the weight and purity at the bottom center. Dusk was created in 2003 and was featured in the book The Art of Amy Brown II.
