Anu Loves, run by the lovely Naia, is an Etsy store specialising in crystals and other magical things. We have collaborated on a range of very special gift sets. The first in the series is the Fairy Crystal Pack.
I created the fairy artwork that features on the front of the little pouch that is filled with crystals, and she also appears on an information postcard that comes with the pack, which has some illustrations of the crystals on the back.
The Fairy was inspired by my best friend and next door neighbour growing up – we were obsessed with fairies when we were little and spent hours playing in the garden together.
One of the lovely things about the project (apart from spending my day drawing fairies!) has been working in a bit of natural history illustration in the plants and animals that appear with the different characters.
If you have a project that could be enlivened by some of my illustrations, do get in touch for a chat about ideas.
