This 10″ x 10″ felted illustration features Viéve, our mermaid turned fairy, as she passes through a wrinkle between her ocean and Lichendia, a magical woodland fairyland. Oh, the adventure that lies ahead! The illustration is painted with wool, using nothing more than a rainbow of wool, felting needles, and a whole lot of creativity.
A reproduction of this illustration is part of the inaugural story in the Lichendia series, Fairy Spells and Strawberry Elves, published in spring 2021. The limited first edition hardcover is a high-quality children’s book, signed by the author and illustrator, Hillary Dow. You have the chance to capture a piece of Lichendian history by purchasing an original illustration of the inaugural story. The sale of each illustration helps fund the self-publishing process.
