Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

Mary

This is the latest illustration I was commissioned to create, for the bedroom of a baby girl.

The baby’s name is Maria, so I kept thinking about Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden, one of my favourite characters in children’s literature. She has a bit of a temper and a mind of her own, but she is also imaginative and has a kind heart. The end of the book is gorgeous so I thought that Mary and the garden were the perfect inspiration for this drawing.

New wall art

I hope baby Maria likes her illustration! :0)
