Inspired by the silent stories those women speak, mute and eloquent in the mythologies of our ancestors, alive each spring and defiant still today, a muse : Persephone, or Spring's Birth.


This original illustration is a unique piece conceived over two years as a celebration of birth and the love of life a child's promise brings. It is very loved!

Drawn with pen, ink and watercolour, cut into a collage using a collection of vintage paper scoured in flea markets in Paris, Rome, the Middle East and beyond, including music scores, vintage Guerlain wrapping and a 1930s world map for her shade. 


The original is sold framed in a handmade brushed silver frame, mounted floating on a white ground, with a final frame size of 22 x 34cm. She will be carefully wrapped, sent with a certificate of authenticity with an International Courrier with tracking.
