People In Your Neighborhood: the amazing Fiona Watson

I came across Fiona's Flickr stream at Daydream Lily's lovely blog, and found Fiona's website through that

the etchings are amazing. i also love the beautiful names she gives her pieces.
'waterwings' is one of my favorites. it gives me shivers and ache, in the soul place.
tadpoles has a similar effect on me. how can a simple glass of tadpoles speak to the mystery and beauty of the world? well, just look.






In addition to her prints and etchings, Fiona also does commissioned portraits. I adore her work and will be visiting her images again and again. I think tadpoles might have inspired a short story from me.

adrienne said...

they are exquisite. yes, waterwings.

i also love the 'one, two, three o'clock' reference to how quickly a dandilion goes from flower to seed to fairy in flight.

if we could simply slow down enough, we might learn a great deal about transformation.

thanks for sharing, maggie may.
