Last month I visited Looe in Cornwall on a family holiday. Whilst there I took lots of photographs of the beautiful surroundings. One of these was a close up shot of a wall with some little flowers and the sea behind it. It captured my imagination and I knew I had to use it for something.
So when I got home I started drawing. I've always loved the idea that there are little faery people living around us and so the illustration began to evolve. Inspired by my friend Eleri as her birthday present.
I painted the faery, collaged it onto the photograph in Photoshop and then collaged flowers on top made from cut out stamps, which is my new obsession, in fact I've made a whole series of Christmas cards made from collaged stamps which I shall post on here soon.
I think I might start a series of faery pictures inspired by the English countryside. What do you think?
