THE moonlit flora COLLECTION
Captivated by the magic of The Cottingley Fairies photographs, the ephemeral nature of other worlds, folklore, and mythology this series of botanical watercolour and mixed media works on paper was born.
Each piece has been hand-painted, collaged, and stitched on beautiful 320gsm handmade paper with an imperfectly perfect deckled edge.
The watercolour washes found in each image harks back to the hand-colouring of monochrome photography of the late-19th century. And the black stitches reminiscent of the dance of marks created by the insects of the night.
SHINE SOME MOONLIGHT INTO YOUR HOME.
A new collection of mixed media works on paper.
a magical world awakes
in a land which they create
and behind the garden gate
a secret space awaits
the darkness once full of fright,
now blooms bright in moonlight
inviting us, come and play
in a land, we cannot stay
witches and fairies know this place
they come and go without a trace
to tell their tale and shine their light
on this bright and magical secret night.
