The Tea Fairy is a visual storyteller. She has been fascinated with photos & postcards since she was a young girl. She is on a creative journey with an aim to create conceptual images from her own, “Bucket List,” in order to encourage others to travel & connect. Photos evoke a sense of nostalgia & she believes creativity can enhance wellbeing. Some of her influences include Klimt, Tim Burton, Van Gogh & Gerry Coe.
