I can only list a selection of my work on Etsy at any one time, but if there is anything I have not listed that you'd like, please email me, I can always list items for you on request!

About my art:
My art is a confection of fantasy and reality, my compositions peopled with characters drawn from my observation of the everyday and the mundane, but coloured by my love of stories and fairytales. Amongst these characters you may find the attractive but suspiciously masked guests at 'The Guilty Party', enjoying an aperitif while they size up their fellow revellers. Then there are the generously proportioned and mellowing flower fairies, at the comfortingly mature 'seed-pod' stage in their lives. Borrowed from Mythology, Medusa…

Then there are the generously proportioned and mellowing flower fairies, at the comfortingly mature 'seed-pod' stage in their lives. Borrowed from Mythology, Medusa is here, too: a femme fatale, perhaps, but also an ordinary girl given to bad hair days. In all these images, there is an element of fantasy, but also many references to everyday situations, and it is in this balance that I hope both to surprise and amuse you.

Introducing: Wendy Marani, plagiarist!
I have been having a spot of bother with a shameless (and thankfully talentless) plagiarist, who goes by the name of Wendy Marani, or sometimes Wendy Marani Hall. I came across this woman's 'Medusa Series' in an online gallery which has since removed them, but Marani herself refuses to respond to me, and still has her copies of my paintings, and those of at least two other artists, displayed in other places on the internet. There being no easy legal recourse, I have been doing my best to get her name spread far and wide around the internet, and at the same time entertaining the readers on my blog with this 'cautionary tale' (still ongoing at time of writing this). To this end, I have made a summary page of the story, where you can find links to all of the satirical blog posts about her, and other information. Her husband, Don Hall, claims to be a well known artist, so even if she is unwilling to take down the images, perhaps he might seek to persuade her. Do visit and feel free to link to this page with the name of Wendy Marani, if you would like to assist me in this effort! The page is here: http://nancyfarmer.wordpress.com/wendy-marani-plagiarist/.
Thank you!
sincerely,
Nancy Farmer.
