Cecily Mary Barker was an illustrator who was born in England in 1895.
I absolutely adore her illustrations!!!
From the website about her work:
Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies™ books, published in the first half of last century, are known and loved around the world.
They were created by a quiet, unassuming and dedicated artist, who was nevertheless remarkably successful, spending her life illustrating many children's books and selling hundreds of watercolours and pastels.
Today, almost thirty years after her death, her work continues to offer delights that have stood the test of time.
