A DELICATE FANTASY

A Delicate Fantasy Main Image - image

A Delicate Fantasy

A Delicate Fantasy - watercolours inspired by flora & fauna, with a delicate fantasy.

A Delicate Fantasy started out in mu's studio aboard MIRRLESS - murpworks afloat. MIRRLESS was a 1991-built, 58ft traditional narrowboat, allowing us to live on the waterways, which inspired original watercolours of flora & fauna of the British countryside, infused with a delicate fantasy. Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror also weave strands into its tapestry.
