It's time for something beautiful. Enter the world of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, where ethereal creatures roam freely. Her work is a mixture of mythology and folklore with a hint of surrealism influenced by nature.

The Unfurling.....An absolutely magnificent woman highlighted in peacock feathers... and yet look very closely at the bottom of the picture. What is the foundation for her glory?

You will see Japanese influences in her work - along with graceful movement. This piece is no exception. And again, a closer look reveals all kinds of creatures.

A lot of her work is commissioned by various publishing companies for books, magazines, role-playing games, etc. It's easy to see why.

This one is titled Seeking the Moth Queen. Moths get a bad rap, especially when compared to the butterfly. There is just a more honest radiance to a moth somehow.

This is a new work of art. I love the matter-of-fact looks on the faces of these reptiles surrounded by the most unusual circular plants (or are they another animal's shell or stones?).

What young girl hasn't wished for wings or to be friends with a dragon? How about both? The peaceful setting makes you feel safe and comfortable. Shades of green and purple show strength and also tranquility.

Titled Companions, another view of the friendship between dragon and fairy. Their confidence is evident in their gaze. Wouldn't want to mess with these two.

This one is called Crows. I have a special affinity for crows and so this is one of my favorites. A good friend of mine (who also happens to be an artist) loves to draw crows as well.

No offense guys but Miz Law's illustrations do not belong under your 'Concept Art' banner. She's a merchandise artist like Amy Brown (yeech). I know she's had some excellent clientele but her work appears on mugs and air fresheners - she does not conceptualize worlds and characters like the rest of the artists you've featured.
