Flying Home Video - Kerry Darlington

As the birds fly south for Autumn, fairy queen Luana and her puckish tribe of smallfolk decide to join the exodus... Wyecliffe Galleries were at Kerry Darlington's studio to pull back the veil on this enchanted work!

 

Inspirations for Flying Home

From Enid Blyton to Arthur Rackham; Kerry's inspirations have often depicted fairies both mischievous and benign! As well as these seminal artists; Kerry's long-held fascination with the fairy world is inspired by her favourite legendary Irish poet...

 “Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart's Desire

 

Meet Kerry Darlington's Fairies

Kerry's tribe of benign fairy-folk hail from the mythical Welsh landscape so dear to her heart. Kerry has named the characters, inspired by figures from Celtic folklore...
