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.

                     moonlit flora

 

 

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.
