Wonder Altar printed towel in poppy red by Untold Imprint

I grew up with Cicely Mary Barker's beloved flower fairy books on my shelf. I loved looking at all the details in her paintings and would imagine living right there beside those sweet forest folk. When I set out to paint an altar dedicated to the world of imagination, her work was what came to mind first. My 'Wonder' towel was inspired by her Poppy Fairy – partly because poppies are my favorite flower, and partly because I so wanted to do a print in a cheerful poppy red color for Spring. My fairy's wings are hidden in my painting – a nod to Kira in The Dark Crystal, who didn't reveal her gorgeous gossamer wings until exactly the right moment. 

Wonder is available now in my shop as cotton towels in both dusty mauve pink & poppy red

Sleeveless tees are coming soon ...
