“I am a self taught artist and the Fairy Queen of Silhouettes and I think butterflies have a thing for me:D...
Now that I have acknowledged myself let me tell you more
Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.
“No one has realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure” Emma Goldman
"Having a background in photography and a knowledge of watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencils and ink, I am the original creator of this new style of art depicting the fairy and fantasy realm. One day inspiration came to me in the form of an idea. "What if I created fairy silhouettes with beautiful photograph backgrounds or the rich colors of abstract art or watercolor?" Much research was done regarding silhouette art to find out if anyone else had come up with this new concept and idea. No one had, it was then that I knew it was my calling and Blessing. To bring back the wonder in our natural world and art with fairies is what inspired this original idea. I wanted my style to highlight beautiful fairy and fantasy silhouettes set with a vibrant night skies and brightly lit sunset backgrounds. All of my work is hand drawn/painted and is true to nature. Some pieces incorporate my photography of breathtaking scenery and silhouette painting with abstract art or watercolor, conveying a feeling of joy, appreciation, gratitude, compassion, healing and love.
My background and true experience with wildlife lends itself to my art. I have exhibited in Manhattan Arts International, Rhonda Schaller Studio in NY, Art For Progress NY and several occasions at Mill Pond House Gallery in Smithtown Long Island. My work has been licensed for storefronts, businesses logos, postcards for art gallery exhibitions. Many of artwroks and stories have been published in local newspapers, overseas magazines in the UK and I have exhibited at libraries to inspire children. Most of all, it is my love and passion to create uplifting bodies of work from my soul that reaches out to the world around me in a positive way. The path of healing by creating positive.
Do You Believe in Fairies? Fairies are loving people of nature who care about the Earth and all living things. Many ages ago stories were told about people and nature coming together to live in harmony with the land. Where the fairies co-exhisted happliy with human kind. Fairies love the wild animals and work together with them. I feel this wonderful place in my heart and life. That still, to this day remains pure. Fairies are beings who need nature to live. They need trees, meadows, flowers, wild animals and clean clear water. In our lives today we hear about how our planets reserves are rapidly dwindling away, global warming, loss of habitat, pollution in waterways and on land. Animals that can not adapt to encroaching modern civilization....they lose their homes. Through the fairy art that I create, the fairies address these fundamental issues. The magic is to pass on caring for things that are important to our survival as a people and for children. The fairies that live at Faeriewood are in silhouette inspiring the imagination in the wonder of life and living things. In creating/working with them in my artwork, sitting down to a new palette I am open to hearing their positive message for nature and us, in conjunction with my own. May this love and light continue to shine out brightly.
