puimun's Profile Picture
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law has been painting fantastic otherworlds from early childhood, though her art career did not begin 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 painted worlds of dreams and the fae.

Her illustrations have been for various game and publishing clients, including Wizards of the Coast, HarperCollins, LUNA Books, Tachyon Books, Alderac Entertainment, and Green Ronin. She has authored and illustrated Dreamscapes (2008, North Light Books), Dreamscapes: Myth & Magic (2010, North Light Books), and Dreamscapes: Magical Menagerie (2012, North Light Books), a series on watercolor technique for fantasy. She is the author and illustrator of best-selling tarot deck, the Shadowscapes Tarot (2009, Llewellyn Worldwide). Her work also regularly appears in Realms of Fantasy Magazine.

In addition to the commissioned projects, she has spent a great deal of time working up a personal body of work whose inspiration stems from mythology, legend, and folklore. Collections of this art are published by Shadowscapes Press. She has also been greatly influenced by the art of the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, Surrealists, and the master hand of Nature. Swirling echoes of sinuous oak branches, watermarked leaf stains, the endless palette of the skies are her signature. Her background of over a decade as a flamenco dancer is also evident in the movement and composition of her paintings. Every aspect of her paintings moves in a choreographed flow, and the dancers are not only those with human limbs. What Stephanie tries to convey with her art is not simply fantasy, but the fantastic, the sense of wonder, that which is sacred.

While most of Stephanie's work is done with watercolors, she experiments with pen & ink, intaglio printing, acrylic, and digital painting as well.

Hi! This is Jenna Moran, formerly R. Sean Borgstrom, the writer for the Nobilis RPG.

I'm putting together a PDF re-release of the second edition---you did some work for its supplement, "The Game of Powers."

I've been able to re-license most of the original art for the core book, but there were four Charles Vess pieces that he wasn't interested in having included in the PDF release. This has left me looking for good pieces to replace those with while still maintaining the high standards James Wallis had established when obtaining art for that edition of the game. While thinking about this, I was reminded that---

While I haven't actually owned a physical copy of Game of Powers in years, and so don't really know what I'm speaking of exactly---

I loved your pieces for The Game of Powers, to the extent that your name stuck in my mind many years later.

So I wanted to talk to you about re-licensing one of them for use in the second edition Nobilis PDF release. I've left a few messages for you on Shadowscapes but haven't heard back; I'm tentatively assuming that they didn't reach you or that for some reason I didn't get your reply.

If you're interested, could you contact me at Jenna.Moran at gmail dotcom?

Best wishes, and thanks much,

I read your bio and especially  this part took my attention:

"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 painted worlds of dreams and the fae.

I want to become an illustrator too but now i have a day job. I don't work until midnight, but i just don't have the motivation to draw or create illustration. It is because i feel tired, and also i have some doubts about becoming a freelancer. It is my dream, but at the same time i am worried if it would be stressful for me to become an illustrator. Keeping a day job on one hand, and working on illustrations on the other hand seems like the best option for me (for now at least, if i can find that energy again.). 

My question is, how did it go for you after quitting your day job, your regular income? ı don't care about how much i earn, but when i think about my future, i have some doubts in terms of stress of looking for jobs all the time and money in long term.

ı think i just need some motivational or at least positive feedbacks.. 


Have a nice day :)

Hello!  It's a difficult road, especially at first. By the time I quit software, I was making equal amount of money from my art, so that was very encouraging. I go in depth about the whole topic of starting out on my blog here:………

I think I found some of your work of Facebook and it's unmarked. Could you confirm?…

It really bugs me to see art without artist credit.
oh... I am so happy. I didn't know you were on DV. I love your art books, I have two. they are my some of my favorites. when I go on a trip somewhere I always bring them with me.

This is kind of a lame question and I know you're busy but when ordering the  Shadowscapes Tarot Deck Special Edition it says to use one word not a phrase like "CatSittingOnFence". I would never want to take advantage of your time or talent, but I was wondering if I could be specific in writing "BarnOwl"? My totem animal is a celestial barn owl and that particular species of owl is very important to me.

Thanks for checking first. :)  That's an acceptable one!
