Salley Mavor

Sally Mavor is an amazing artist. I admire anyone who can finish a piece and she does some amazing stuff which is shared on her site Wee Folk Studio



detail from the last illustration from Sally's 2001 picture book, In the Heart.

Even the logo for her Etsy shop is gorgeous.


She describes hereself thus
"Today, I sew different materials together to create fanciful scenes in relief, much like miniature, shallow stage sets, with figures imposed on embellished fabric backgrounds. My work is decorative and detailed, full of patterns from nature and  found objects, all  sewn together by hand with a needle and thread. The original fabric relief sculptures have been photographed and used to illustrate 10 children’s books, including the award-winning Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes. Original illustrations from Pocketful of Posies are touring the country into 2014. My how-to book, Felt Wee Folk: Enchanting Projects is still being discovered, after almost 10 years in print."
