Hi, I’m Emily Fautz, the artist behind Fantastical Forest.

The concept for Fantastical Forest comes from my favorite thing to do, spend time in nature.

On a regular day, I’m typically rockhounding, hiking, kayaking, or gardening. I draw inspiration from my adventures outdoors and daydreaming about the amazing life that flourishes within the world around me. My paintings typically include dark colors with high metallic contrast. I also love painting and drawing on wood where the wood grain shows through the image. I’ve lived in Kentucky all my life and have always found solace in the woods.

As of right now, I am not taking commissions until Summer 2023. My focus, in the meantime, will be on in-person craft fairs. If you’re local, I hope to meet you!
