Kate Greenaway


I love the art of Kate Greenaway –  a 19th-Century English illustrator who created a beautiful, idealized world of children and nature, and paid such particular attention to the clothing that she also influenced the fashion of the times.     Her mum was a seamstress, and as she was home-schooled and often played in the countryside alone, she seemed to have naturally developed into the artist that she became.  Her books are treasures, such lovely colors and exquisite details.
