Wood Nymph by Sybille Sterk
Clear

I was playing with my own premade backgrounds. This particular image was inspired by the photos of the Cottingley Fairies. Arthur Conan Doyle was apparently convinced that the ‘faries’ were real, although to me they look like paper cutouts… Odd. Photo manipulation certainly has come a long way since 1917.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
