Featuring truly three-dimensional embellishments, every single butterfly has individually been coated with resin applied with a combination of hand-dipping and paint-brushing. Therefore, each work will feature unique characteristics, including varying textures of smooth, course and lightly applied resin – these are all perfectly normal and reflective of the hand-made nature of of this fantastic edition. 

Kerry Darlington was born in 1974 in Rhyl, North Wales.

She was inspired by magical fairy tale picture books and stories during her childhood, and held a particular fascination for Arthur Rackham’s intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children’s book Illustrator. During this period she discovered the Pre-Raphaelite artists and Art Nouveau. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it captivated her completely and it still has a profound effect on her own art.

In the years that followed, Kerry began to build a reputation for her original, decorative designs using 3D elements and resin which became hugely popular, focusing primarily on trees and nature. Inspiration for these was taken from the Art Nouveau period, particularly Klimt’s infamous ‘Tree of Life’. Today, she continues to paint themes of myth and legend, poetry and stories.
