Open Dreamscapes Myth & Magic, and enter a realm where fantasy springs to life in dreamlike colors, luscious textures and graceful compositions. I am always awe-struck by the beauty and intricacy of Stephanie’s watercolor worlds–she is able to make the paint flow and swirl with luminosity and vibrance, all while guiding the viewer through the piece with carefully placed details.
Continuing the journey of the original Dreamscapes, this second book by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law explores—in words and beautiful watercolor imagery—more legends of the sea, sky and earth. You will learn Stephanie’s secrets for calling forth maidens, mermaids and bewitching moonlight … for evoking dragons, enchantresses and tricksters … for turning seeds of legend and lore into spellbinding characters, creatures and settings.

Whether you paint fantasy or not, if you enjoy the magic of watercolor you will be inspired by the magic created on the pages of Dreamscapes Myth & Magic.
Stephanie has been painting since early childhood, though her art career did not start until 1998 when she graduated from a program of Computer Science. After three years of programming for a software company by day and rushing home to paint into the midnight hours, she left the world of typed logic and numbers for the painted world. Stephanie works mostly in watercolor, but also experiments with pen & ink, intaglio printing, acrylic and digital painting.
