Memory's Wake - Chapter Three
She had looked at him as if he were some kind of animal. Worse. A monster. The terror in her eyes crushed his heart, as though the rockslide that closed the cave entrance had also fallen on it. He had waited for her for so long. He ran the moment he heard the noise, that same gusting howl he remembered from his first night in this world, coming from the very same spot. The night he would never forget. Just how long had it been? The years felt longer for being unable to count them, but shorter for his time spent with the fae. So long, lost in that forest, doubting he’d ever see her again, that his memories of her were even real. But her

Earlier. Why has it become so hard just to keep my mind on a simple book? Focus, Eloryn ordered herself. Her eyes skimmed over words without absorbing any meaning. She pinched her forehead and flicked back a page, trying to find the last information she’d actually retained from The Principles and History of Infantry Warfare. Alward no doubt had his reasons for making this dull book part of her syllabus but she couldn’t see how it would ever be much use to her, either for her teaching or in practice. If she was learning things she couldn’t share with her own students, she’d prefer to be studying magic. Learning used to

Memory's Wake - Chapter One
Memory's Wake - Chapter One I’m falling, she thought. Rushing air tore at her like claws and her stomach churned. She knew only darkness and the horrible, hateful wind. She jolted into consciousness as if waking from a nightmare, one so real, so intense, it left her soul shaken. All she remembered from her dream was the noise; a furious rumble like the call of a hungry dragon from a dark fairytale. It turned her insides as much as the sensation of falling. Now awake, she couldn’t understand why she still heard it, why she still felt like she plummeted into hell. Some other sound teased her, unidentifiable, lost in the wind. &ld

Biennial Update 2011
Or the "Wow, I really do only come here every 2 years now!" post. Who am I? My name is Selina Fenech. I've been full time self employed as an artist since about 2002, displaying my work online for longer than that, and drawing and painting even longer. I'm generally your typical girl-geek, with a particular fascination for fantasy themes, of course. I also run the Fairies and Fantasy Pty Ltd company, merchandising not only my artwork, but that of a few other artists as well. It keeps me busy! What about my artwork? I've been mostly doing digital work for the last year. I still do some traditional work with either a watercolour and/or acr

The Biennial Update :)
Who am I? My name is Selina Fenech, some of you will know me as THAT Selina Fenech. I've been full time self employed as an artist since about 2002, displaying my work online for longer than that, and drawing and painting even longer. I'm generally your typical girl-geek, with a particular fascination for fantasy themes, of course. I'm from Australia, and was born in 1981. I'm a girl, I'm engaged to be married and I have one pet cat with no name. What about my artwork? Mostly my art these days is mixed media. I normally start with either a watercolour and/or acrylic base painting, with other bits of pencil, pastels, inks, whatever, thrown

A Bit About Me!
Welcome to my DA Gallery! My name is Selina Fenech, and have been a professional artist since about 2000, but of course have been drawing for much, much longer. Some of the oldest artworks my mum still has of mine are from as far back as two years old! I'm a big nerd, and love anything in that cult genre, anything fantasy, of course, comics, RPG's, computer stuff, you name it. But the biggest obsession of course is fantasy and fairies, which dominate everything I create. I'm from Australia, and was born in 1981. I'm a girl, and I have one pet cat with no name :) and I'm short. I mostly work in watercolours with a few other mediums thrown
