ABOUT

Rebecca Magar - a.k.a. Wailing Wizard

Rebecca Magar

I have always been inspired by fantastic and imaginative stories with dark themes. In addition to my love of fantasy, I grew up with a close relationship to (and love for) animals. These ideas and inspirations naturally made their way into my own work while I progressed as an artist.

My work would be best described as imaginative realism or dark fantasy art. I frequently include animals, death, skeletons, crows and other dark subject matter in my artwork, and I love to incorporate hidden references to personal experiences and stories within each piece.

As an artist, I try to breathe life into each piece by incorporating both subtle and bold movements. My hope is that the observer not only views the artwork, but also imagines the rushing wind, senses the cold, or hears the sound of wings thrashing in the sky. I aim for each and every piece to be a complete visual experience.

Bio

Rebecca Magar took a few years of childhood art lessons, but is otherwise self-taught. She has been creating art for nearly 20 years, however, she only began developing her focus as a dark fantasy artist within the last 8 years.

In 2007, Rebecca graduated with an associates in graphic design from Bradley Acedemy for the Visual Arts in York, PA. Rebecca is employed professionally as a graphic designer and web developer, which has given her the ability to combine design and traditional fine art to produce album artwork, cover art and illustrations using oils, acrylics, pen & ink, charcoal, pencil and digital arts.

Her unique understanding of both fine art and graphic production techniques gives her the ability to produce finished designs that are completed and ready for print, web, or a variety of other applications.
