With so much war and strife in our world, it’s odd that so much of fantasy art concentrates on the chaotic, war-torn eras of history and unhistory. Fortunately, you’ll find a welcome respite to the fray in Florence Chan‘s artwork. Her gentle watercolor snapshots of fey and human folk elegantly convey peace and inner strength.

Many of Ms. Chan’s characters have an obvious connection to nature. In a few instances, her figures are inseparable from their organic environment. Perhaps this connection to the natural world explains the grounded, yet spiritual nature of Florence’s work.

Can you feel it too?

Florence has a newer site, but it’s nearly fantasy free.
