Mary transports us to a world called Flora Fauna and once we get there, we just want to stay. With influences from classic childrens’ books and fairy tales, Mary’s soft sculptures and appliqued bags are as special as the species they represent. As an avid birder Mary tries to make her birds as close to the real thing as possible – in tweed!  Mary is fascinated with everything outdoors – from birds, animals and plants to rocks and tree bark. Her sensitivity to nature coupled with an impeccable design aesthetic creates the perfect breeding ground for Mary’s magical artistic work.

Mary’s grandmother taught her to sew and do handwork when she was a child and she’s been at it ever since! This generational gift adds to the magic of Mary’s work and the handmade crafting community in general! ‘Tis the real thing: crafting skill and appreciation lovingly handed down to our children and grandchildren. THIS is why we love and support handmade!

Flora Fauna is a real highlight of our winter sale for the nature-lover in all of us. Each creature has its own personality, expression and style.
