The New Angel

I have some fabulous news…talented Nicola Senior has agreed to let Earth Angels sell her fabulous work. Nicky creates paper mache figures with traditional methods and in her own charming proportions.

Her pieces sing with diminutive details...curly locks of mohair top beautiful faces...

...skirts on teacup figures open to showcase wee paintings and stories...

In her Cheshire studio -- in the North West of England -- she hand builds her creations inspired by her love of the British seaside, the art of tea and a love of sweets and, the whimsies of bygone lady-like past times. Her long and leggy figures hang as wall art appointed with extremely fine painting. Her brushwork connotes a grasp of dainty form and whimsy and the range of her talent. In Nicky’s wondrous work mermaids flaunt headbands of fish friends, tea cups brim with exquisite and dainty confections and fairies tell their secrets and stories.

Her second love for stitchery often shows itself with embroidered trims, tags and fashions. They are made with an attention to detail that shows her range of talent and a rich imagination.

I hope you enjoy browsing her exquisite creations…and please join me in welcoming her into our group of talented artists!

Michelle has just sent an email today to some collector friends and enthusiasts with more images and details...let me know if you'd like us to forward that to you...

Thanks Nicky for these amazing pieces...I cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
xxoo Jen
