One of the most personally popular fantasy illustrators in the world, and a distinguished illustrator of children's books, Jael has, during the course of her career, also produced many paintings in a quite different style from her published work.
The market for these semi-abstract - "perceptualistic" - paintings has been an eager one and her recent tentative steps into marketing them as prints and displaying them at fantasy and SF conventions have been resoundingly well received. It is not surprising.
Richly imagined and always tantalisingly on the verge of realism, her perceptualistics are woven from the very fabric of fantasy. This, her first book, concentrates on the perceptualistic paintings, while also containing a selection of the very finest of her more conventional fantasy paintings, including the famous 'The Dream Lives'.
