Jacqueline Collen Tarrolly
Always a bit of a misfit as a child, Jacqueline began painting as a way to express the fae she saw in the trees and hidden places of the world. Since her first professional entrance into the scene of fairy art, her work has appeared in numerous books and publications and can be found on a myriad of gifts such as magnets, stickers and keychains in shops such as Hot Topic, Claires, The Icing and others. She is a regular vendor at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire and the Northern California Renaissance Faire.
In addition to her own website, Toadstool Farm Art, and this one, she manages an artists co-operative wholesale group, The Fairy Court, and two other collective art websites, Mystic Minis, and My Fairy Baby.
She now lives in a storybook cottage in Los Angeles with her husband, teenaged son, an assortment of wild and domestic animals, an ever changing clutch of fairy folk, and one brand new beautiful little fairy baby girl named Antonia. She remains a misfit.
