Selina Fenech is an Amazing Artist and Illustrator with a Plethora of Fairy and Fantasy Themed Coloring Books
Born in 1981 to Australian and Maltese parents, Selina lives with her family near Sydney, Australia. During her life Selina has found ancient Roman treasure, survived cancer, had knights joust at her wedding, earned a living from her art by age twenty-three, eaten every bizarre and wonderful food put in front of her, written numerous novels and painted hundreds of artworks.
Once upon a time, on the night of a full moon, in a small country town in Australia a girl was born with a vast imagination. She was given the name Selina, meaning “Moon”, named after the moon that shone that night.
As a child Selina loved to read. Her favourite stories were those of myth and magic, princesses and fairies. She soon learned she had a greater love than reading when she would spend countless hours staring at the illustrations in these books, ignoring the stories told in words in preference of the stories shown by the artworks. She would study each brush stroke, marvelling that any human hand could create such beauty. The images enchanted her, bewitched her, and filled her head with magic and romance.
Having always enjoyed drawing, Selina began to create artworks of her own ideas of fantasy inspired by the illustrations in her fairytale books, with goddesses, fairies and enchanted creatures. She grew up continually trying to improve her art and create that same magical feel and sense of adventure she knew as a child.
Many years later, Selina’s artwork has been warmly received by lovers of fantasy all over the world. Selina still resides in Australia, being self employed in painting her ideas of fantasy and selling her own artwork and handcrafted gift designs. In her spare time, Selina enjoys cooking, urban homesteading, spending time with her husband and daughter, and all things geeky.” SelinaFenech.com
You can certainly see her love of the fae and fairie folk in her artwork.
All of Selina’s books come with 2 of each illustration. That’s not my favorite format for coloring in but the illustrations are so fabulous, you will end up forgiving her for that. Maybe one day she’ll make bigger volumes with 1 of each in them but for now be happy with the 25 drawings for 50 pictures in each book.
As if being a fabulous illustrator wasn’t enough talent for one person, Selina also writes a series of YA trilogy called Memory Wake and has now created two new coloring books to go along with it.

Festival Magic coloring book does feature 25 enchanting fairies, angels, unicorns, (and even one baby dragon!) with a festive theme ready to be brought to life with color.
At the end of 2016, Selina released a new coloring book that departed from her usual beautiful sensual fantasy creatures to a cute coloring book of fairies and their friends for the younger coloring audience. This book looks like it will still be complex enough to interest adults but the subject matter will be more suitable for tweens who want to color too.
