Welcome to The Mystic Garden Gallery & Studio
Born in 1963, Linda Ravenscroft is a self taught artist
who has been painting since she was very young. Until recently,
she lived with her husband, John, and animal companions,
in the beautiful county of Cheshire, England.
Since then, she has had the opportunity to follow one of her dreams, moving to the magical
town of Glastonbury, “The Isle of Avalon”, in Somerset. Where she and her husband John have just finished renovating an old Georgian bank, to create a magical home and Linda’s official gallery and studio space, “The mystic garden gallery & Studio”
Linda became a professional artist in 1994 after the birth of her
son, Dorian, who was very ill after the birth. Linda was unable to go back to
her office job as she had planned; the only other thing she thought she could
do to earn a living whilst taking care of Dorian was “Paint”.
Since then, her work has been widely published and her work and has featured in many Fantasy/Fairy Art books, such as “The Art of Faerie”
“The World of Faerie” and “Watercolour Fairies”.
She has also illustrated and written several Tutorial Faerie Art books,
including the best selling “How to Draw and Paint Fairies” and “How to Draw and Paint Fairyland”,
and her own "Enchanted Faerie and Fantasy Art of Linda Ravenscroft"
and "The Fairy Artists Figure Drawing Bible",
as well as her best selling “Woodland Faeries Calendars” and "The Msytic Faerie Tarot Deck" by Llewellyn Publishing.
Together with TV appearances promoting her beautiful Card crafting C.D. ROMs,

She has also created a series of colouring books, of which she has produced four with plans for more!
Linda’s work is collected worldwide, in the USA and Europe in particular.
Opening a Gallery in Glastonbury is a dream which Linda and husband John have shared
for quite a while - an opportunity for Linda to have a place where she can work,
show her art and have a classroom for students. In 2015 they purchased the old Natwest Bank in Glastonbury and created
“The Mystic Garden Gallery” the gallery was named after one of her first ever published art pieces.
“My inspiration comes from many sources. I rely mostly on my dreams and inner feelings, as I have done since I was a child. Together with my love of nature and fascination for myths and ancient legends, my mind is constantly visualising new creations. In my view “Faerie” represents the natural world we live in, and whether you believe or not, they do have a place in our modern day society. In fact, their light is needed more now than it ever was before. It's time to look at this world and our feelings towards our fellow man, and realise what harm we are doing. Most of my images are inspirational and uplifting, offering hope or a thought for the future of this beautiful world we live in. I truly believe that we all have a little bit of Faerie light within our hearts, helping us to make the right decisions in our everyday lives. We just have to look for it, and let it SHINE BRIGHTLY in the darkness!"
Shine brightly and live your dreams...Linda R
