Fairy Friday

The art work of Margaret W. Tarrant

The Fairy Way by Margaret W. Tarrant
 In searching for some fairy art to post today I came across an artist I've not heard of before -  Margaret W. Tarrant. I think the image above is beautiful. If you click the image it will enlarge and you can more details. I tried to find a website for her or at least something on Wikipedia but, was able to find very little. Has anyone else heard of her? She was a freelance artist and had done some illustrations for a few books. I'm just surprised she's not more poplular. I've added a link to a site that tells a little bit about her and if you google her images you can see how gorgeous her artwork is. I'll definitly be post more of her images.

I hope you enjoy this little image of the fairies frolicking. It seemed so springtime. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  1. Actually, my mother had a fairy tale book with her art. I don't know much about her either, I just love her style though. I found these links for you. :)
