My name is Meredith Dillman and I have long been inspired by fantasy and fairy tales. Long ago I had ideas of becoming a fashion designer, but I became an artist instead. I still use my love of fashion in my watercolor paintings, by creating fairies in fanciful costumes without having to sew (even writing a book about how to paint fantasy costumes). Inspiration is everywhere around me: from art history the the petals and leaves or plants and the forest floor.

My paintings are created with ink, watercolor, some acrylic, and a little magic! I have collected 13 of them together to make a fairy enchanting 2018 calendar and that I am currently crowdfunding. I hope they are inspiring to you too!
