Meet Mabel and Florence

Meet Mabel and Florence. They are little fairies housed in painted frames, measuring 10" x 4".
They are my latest creations which I am pretty pleased with if I say so myself!

They are made from tea dyed silk, vintage lace, silk ribbon and wire.

Mabel is dressed in pink and is 8" tall and I don't think she will grow any taller now.

Florence is partial to blue and cream with an Eau de Nil painted frame.

She is just a fraction taller than Mabel and is very fond of dancing.
Although they are part of one large family, as each is handmade they are unique.

I have put them up for sale here

Also, whilst writing, I would just like to thank everyone for their comments following my last post. It's great to know that you are out there and supporting me and it's renewed my faith in human nature!
Thanks again. xx

Nothing New Under the Sun

I recently received a very upsetting email from an artist I had previously admired. She accused me of copying her work and of featuring her work on my blog without her permission.

The piece that appeared on my blog I had recently purchased and wanted to share with you. I gave her full credit for the work and promoted an exhibition she was taking part in. At NO point did I take credit for it - and nor would I. If I should have asked her permission, this was an honest mistake for which I have apologised.

Those who know me know that I have always strived to follow my own vision and I would NEVER plagiarise another artists' work.

I am sorry to strike such a serious note here but my reputation as an artist is of utmost importance to me. I am very upset by these allegations and wanted to put the record straight.

And the winners are ...

First of all let me say how amazed I am at how many of you signed up for my newsletter this summer.

To ensure fair play I have uploaded the images of the prestigious ceremony taking place!

And well done to Andrea, Sarita and Linda. I will be contacting you shortly to arrange for delivery of your prize!

Kids are STILL on holiday! So will catch up properly with you all next week sometime!
