Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Art Love: Kristy Mitchell

Aren't these photos breath taking? Kristy Mitchell is a UK fine art fantasy photographer and this is from her latest series "Wonderland".  This series has been ongoing for over 4 years.  Her mother passed away from a brain tumor and she channeled her grieving process into her passion for photography.  I love how mythical and magical it is and takes you to a new place, and feels so authentic.  All of the costumes and set is all constructed by hand and takes months to create- but what's amazing is the amount of detail and care.  She also keeps an online diary while she is making and creating.
