Dainty Artist | Stephen Mackey!

My favourite modern artists are few, but sometimes one comes along who's work I get lost in and can't seem to take my eyes away from. And that's definitely Stephen Mackey's work for me. It pulls at my heart and emotions and takes me to other worlds of long ago without leaving the present day. The delicate details of it's subject, realistic flower petals, the dainty shapes of the subjects lips and finger tips mixed with a certain melancholic & disturbing jen est ce que! But, what I do know is that I'm completely besotted with them and they make my heart dance. 
Stephen Mackey resides in the UK with his family, pets & is self-taught. Which just goes to show, the talent and vision is either in you or it's not. I love the mysterious nature of all of these works, one could conjure up a thousand meanings to these paintings and I would guarantee it would mean something completely different to the artist. Their so realistic, even the spiders, which is un-settling to me at times, haha! 
But, I adore them & I hope you enjoy them too. You can see more work on his website. I will be away for a few days, hopefully re-doing my blog and getting some pictures taken as well. I hope all of you have a great rest of the week & weekend to come. I'll be in touch on my Instagram though.
