Cottage Garden Inspired Textiles
Caroline Dilworth is the artist behind Les Papillons. Based in County Fermanagh, Caroline used to paint large landscapes and horses, but arthritic pain led to surgery and stopped a flourishing career as an artist. Compelled to paint she found that painting small eliminated the pain, but what do you do with tiny artworks? You wear them!
Caroline enjoys painting animal faces and floral scenes, Influenced by her cottage garden, which at times looks more wild than manicured her paintings document the changing of the seasons and the growing flowers and those very useful critters who pollinate our planet.
Presented in branded packaging, with gift tag and artist information sheet. This design proved so popular that I have brought it back for Autumn/Winter with new scarlet velvet backing. Printed from my artwork the scene depicts a blustery summer day buzzing with the happy sound of bees foraging for nectar and pollinating the plants. Folklore surrounding bees tells us that the gift of bees will bring wealth and health to the receiver.
This cushion is printed on soft velvet and measure 30cm x 60cm. Fibre filled.
