Inside the Cover...


I purchased this book, 'Margaret Kilgallen: In The Sweet Bye &Bye' at the Palais de Tokyo bookshop in Paris [such a wonderful place!!]....it was a book I had never seen before. I had heard murmurings of Margaret's work around the Internet but had never really 'seen' a collection of it together....so this book was a find and a half.

I like her art so much...I love the way she depicts leaves and natural forms, which although are very different to my own style {and even, from my normal taste}, really gets me thinking and feeling inspired. I find her work pretty exciting, original and beautiful....obviously hers is a style that has also greatly influenced many that have come since....so I can understand why her sad untimely death was such a blow to the art world.
This is one to pick up if you can....perfect for flicking through often. You see something new each time.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Toodle-oo Sunday!
