Cicely Mary Barker Flower Fairies - Competition
We are delighted to be able to bring the beautiful Cicely Mary Barker Flower FairiesTM to Australia & New Zealand, for both our retail and wholesale customers.
Based on the works of famous artist Cicely Mary Barker, these figurines are beautifully hand painted and are a lovely collectors item or accent in any fairy garden.
In 1911, at the age of 16, Cicely’s career as a painter took off when four of her paintings were published as postcards, then at 17 and after her father’s death, she submitted her art and poetry to various magazines and publishers as a way to help support her family.
Cicely Mary Baker believed in ‘truth to nature.’ Her flowers are botanically accurate, being painted from life/plant specimens, while her fairies were child models from her sister’s kindergarten. Each picture depicts a flower fairy whose clothes are made from the petals and leaves of their particular flower. She painted the flower fairies, then once complete she wrote the acompanying poems.
The first of her flower fairies books, Flower Fairies of the Spring, was published in 1923. Seven other books about fairies were published in the following decades.
