I love the colour of the hair against the dress. As an image by itself it's lovely and the contrasts of the green trees against the red...

This started off as a self portrait and they I went to town on it in Photoshop. The lashes are part of the original photograph I just enhanced what was there already.

Another combo of public domain images, bought and free resources mixed up in Photoshop. I am not sure what her story is but she looks kind of sad and thoughtful despite her wings and butterflies. Maybe she's trying to be too many things at once.
Icarus - The Romance by MagpieMagic

A new piece based on my original Icarus - The Yearning. It's one of my favourite images and I thought it was time for an update. 

This is a mix of a photo I took of five feathers, which I then edited in Photoshop to look like a painting and overlaid with vintage images of wings and a Delft blue colour. It reminded me of Delft porcelain and the delicate blue designs you find on that.

I make jewellery.
