Artist's notes on style, materials and inspiration:

Autumn is my favourite season - although I struggle with the light levels of winter, and know that the cooler temperatures means that it is on its way, I just love the crisp air, the colours of the leaves, the foraging and the scents in the air. A big part of childhood autumns past was to collect 'conkers' - the fruit of the horse chestnut tree. Although they aren't edible, they have the most beautiful colour and smooth shape, encased in the most glorious green and spiky casing.

My 'favourite things' wood girl series share the places and things I love, a favourite motif or theme, or are inspired by a microseason. Turned from American Tulipwood, a sustainable and interestingly grained timber, the pieces are turned by a production wood turner in the UK to my designs, then added to and painted by me, a British artist. They are finished in a matt acrylic protective top coat.

This large size wood girl is approximately 24.5cm in height. Favourite Things girls are numbered on the base, this one is #28.

My pieces are painted in a naïve and simple style, with visible brush strokes and differing paint consistencies. It is important to note that these dolls are made from real wood which will have naturally occurring markings and grain, and sometimes there will be small amount of bleeding along the grain, or knots, which is to be expected when using untreated wood - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully before purchasing.

PLEASE NOTE: Wood girls should be kept away from water which can damage the wood and painted surface, and also away from direct heat/ sunlight which also can affect the surface colour and the timber itself.
