Seller: Mary Layton
Offered: "The Apple Faery", a painting done as an homage to Arthur Rackham. It is a 9" x 12" Watercolour and Ink painting on cold press watercolour paper.
Found as a wee babe wandering through the undergrowth dressed in an elaborately arranged collection of leaves, flowers, and feathers, Mary was raised in a small town in North Carolina. She's lived in NC, SC, and GA, but finds her favourite place to be is the UK, where her husband (who thinks she's a bit strange, but loves her just the same) is originally from. Unfortunately, he prefers the States, so Mary is stuck there for the time being. She consoles herself with water colour paints, coloured pencils, pen and ink, and her Wacom tablet creating creatures she'd like to be, or at least be friends with. She has a worrying addiction to Second Life and her husband expects to come home one day to find her chair gently rocking as if recently vacated and Mary waving at him from inside the computer screen.
