Cicely Mary Barker


Cicely Mary Barker (28 June 1895 – 16 February 1973) was an English illustrator best known for her series of fantasy illustrations depicting fairies and flowers.
I have learned about her flower fairies long time ago but somehow her collection was not available in Hungary. Last week I received a letter from the bookshop I ussualy buy my books from and they announced me they have the entire collection. I went there and bought it. I would love to draw like that. Her flower fairies book have become a classic of children literature and a practical guide for them to get to know the flowers and their names.
