Oh, thank you. I needed a good dose of artandghosties! This post's offerings are beyond stunning. I keep going back to look at them. I LOVE Arielle and All in a Row, as well as Parasol the most. You never fail to delight me. I only wish that I lived in a large house again so that I had wall space to fill.

Many thanks for not making me wait TOO long for another post!

All in a Row reminds me, for obvious reasons, of Leonard Cohen's Bird on a Wire.

Like AnneJulie, I also love the colors on the bird in Thumbelina, and the four ladies of Séance I think all together make some kind of feminist statement. But I may be reading too much into them.

BTW, if ever you feel nervous about your "perfectionism," remember this quote by Michelangelo:

“Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle."

PS: Excuse me, I said AnneJulie, I meant, Andrea.

I simply adore the "All in a Row" piece! So lovely and magical... :) (As are all the pieces!)

Louise, if you like Ghost Bees then you ought to check out Cocorosie. I think you might like them aswell.

Oh, what a lovely surprise, a post from you!

Your new work is really beautiful. I particularly like All in a Row. To me those flowers are pretty and sinister at the same time...

Hope your move is going well...

Best wishes, Helen

I looove Thumbelina!

Hi there, I've seen your work before on Etsy and just loved it, so today when I came across your blog I was super excited. Your work is spectacular, really it is. There is something in it that reminds me of my work...I think perhaps its the juxtaposition of whimiscal elements that normally wouldn't be together. Anyhow, I mentioned you on my blog today and I'll definatly be checking back in to see your new pieces. Wow, thanks for sharing your fantastic vision/world. Be Well, Mandy

Hilary

These are SO beautiful! I've just found your blog and was wondering if you made prints/cards of any of these? I'd love all the dark-haired Dulcimer-esque ones!
Best, Hilary.

lou

thanks so much everyone!

Hilary, i tried to reply to you via email but the message was returned. you can always check on my etsy shop for dulcimer type prints (some will be added later this week) - or if you dont have an account there, i can easily arrange something for you! thanks:)))

Oh there is so much going on in Airelle...you could look at it forever! I love Thumbelina...the colors on the bird are perfect! Now, if you are resting...I would hate to see what goes on when you are working...LOL

Yoli

I am SOOO excited to see the asian features in your work! Can't wait for more!

Lynne

Your version of Thumbelina belongs in an updated children's book..mesmerizing!!

Kim

The hair on Thumbelina is so deliciously scary and coll all at the same time. Photoshop really is your friend!!!!

How odd - I just heard Ghost Bees the other say on the CBC and loved them...must sniff them out. I love everything (always) but particularly Parasol and the Seance Ladies (I might have to steal their outfits for dolls...) I'm sorry if I forgot to say thank you for your fascinating description of your doll to page process you sent me...it was amazing to read and explained it very well. And so odd about the PD JAMES thingy - right now I'm reading another of hers, The Lighthouse. Not as good as Shroud, but still fun. Great post - thank you!

OK this is interesting. When I looked at Arielle again, I noticed the paving-stones beneath her feet. At that moment I thought she was dancing on a trapdoor, and this notion excited me. It occurs to me that a trap door would fit perfectly into many of your images and add a compelling new interpretation.

I love the mood in Séance. They reward scrutiny. I confess I too thought of the Björk video, and of the Leonard Cohen song with All In A Row. I like that the wire doesn't sag under her, as if she were as light as a bird.

I only just now noticed the tiny nest in Thumbelina. The spectacular coloring of the bird makes it hard to look at anything else. Again, your art rewards careful scrutiny.

linda

I found you on Etsy the other night and have only jst had some time to check out your blog! I had to tell you I just ADORE your work it is soooo beautiful! love it :)

Sandy

I LOVE the girl on the wire with the egg....fabulous!!!!

Sandyxox

A Fanciful Twist

I can't chose which one captures my heart more... But the wire and the birds and the egg!!! Divine!!! xoxo (but parasol talk to my heart!)

jenn

So you got me again..love them all and have to keep looking to find even more hidden detail. Especially the dark girls inspired by the book you are readings..love love love them! What a treat your post is!

neile

Holy cow! I've loved your shop forever, but haven't checked it out in a while. I just stumbled upon your blog and am in awe. These new works are amazing!

maki

Your work is so inspiring!

Linda

I found your website/blog through Somerset studio..I must say, it has now become one of my favorites. Your pictures have such a dream(nightmare) like quality...I just love it. Sometimes it is hard to believe that they are photo collage. I think you should do the art for Neil Gaimen's "Coraline".

Dees

Of course I want to rush over to your shop and buy each and every item,but sigh....must restrain.But LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!(I have been on a dolls shopping spree as you know and I am saving up to buy a dollstown seola body.)xoxo

Bianca

I'm in love!

sooz

Relyn

I have been completely enamoured with your art since I first "found" you via Persisting Stars. I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I adore your amazing talent.

Sandra

Ah, but your obsessions they are so Beautiful!
Sandra Evertson

Jenny, Bloggess

Incredible. I'm speechless.

Relyn

I have seen your blog listed on various blogrolls around and only just now came and spent some time in your world. I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I love it. I am wondering what on earth took me so long.

I love your art - both digital and painted. I spent a good bit of time on your Flickr and felt thrilled to discover such a wealth of original, evocative art. I will be back. Again and again, I am sure. Until then, I just wanted to say, "Thanks."

Fanfan
