Amelia Jane Murry (1800-1896) was a Victorian artist celebrated for her enchanting fairy illustrations, crafted with delicate watercolors and inspired by the Manx Gaelic fairy folklore of her native Isle of Man. Born into an illustrious family as the daughter of Lord Henry Murray and the niece of John Murray, the 4th Duke of Atholl, Murry's artistic journey began in the early 1820s. Her fairy artworks intricately wove Manx folklore into lush depictions of flora and fauna, seamlessly integrating delicate fairies with the natural landscape. In 1829, she married Sir John Oswald of Dunniker, adopting the title of Lady Oswald. The couple relocated to Fife, Scotland, and raised a blended family of eight children. However, with the passing of Sir John Oswald in 1840, Murry ceased her artistic pursuits. She continued her remarkable life until her demise in 1896. In 1985, her exquisite fairy paintings found their way into the public eye through the publication of A Regency Lady’s Fairy Bower, ensuring her legacy endures.
