“I paint the spirit and soul of what I see.”
Brian Froud

“Perhaps all women are part faerie, for what woman can deny her faerie blood when the portals to her own land are open; when the full moon sings its insistent song; when sorrow and passion and rage pulse through her body at moon times.

“I feel that what you should illustrate is the space between the words. It's the betweenness, the otherness, that gives depth and dimension.”
Brian Froud
