Lillian Fioretzi Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Welcome to an enchanted fairytale world of beautiful artworks of fairies, fantasy, unicorns, dragons, goblins, mermaids, pagan & wiccan creatures, goddesses, myth and magic by Greek artist Lillian Fioretzi. Her enchanted art is taking you to a mystical, magical, and romantic fantasy world consisted of fantasy themed sketches and paintings.
Lillian came into the world on the 29 of May, 1969. Spending much of her childhood and teen years in a small town in Greece, she was never aware of fairies, elves & all this kind of existence. Nobody had ever talk to her about these charming "little people". Even though Greece has been a land of mythology with many Goddesses & Muses, fantasy has never been available to public at large. Lillian has been drawing from the moment she learned how to hold a pencil! Back to her childhood, as a lonely child in her family ( 8 years apart from her older sister ), her drawing skills had been developing at an incredible rate by drawing invisible friends to keep her away from that loneliness .
Even though she had taken a number of life drawing classes in the past, she remain for the most part a self-taught artist. She loves watercolor and she constantly read books on watercolor techniques and studys the work of other artists. However, after struggling to find an approach to her art that speaks to her, she has come into her own style. She also developed her own way of using the well known technique of watercolor & sault. She mainly uses watercolor, ink and colored pencil and she plans to explore other mediums such as acrylics in the very near future. She does not keep a sketchbook, neither does a lot of pre-work such as roughs or color studies, and does not ever rework her pieces. When the muse strikes, she usually has a rough idea to what she wants the finished image to look like.
