Shakespeare, Camelot and a Bulldog: A Very English Weekly Round-up of WonderStreet Artists

There has been a lot of activity in our Art Gallery this week and we couldn't help but notice a similar thread running through some of the more popular pages... Anglophilia!

Kerry Darlington takes most of her inspiration from children's fairytale stories and illustrations. She also identifies quite strongly with the pre-Raphaelites of the mid-19th century. We can see echoes of Millais' classic work in this Kerry Darlington Ophelia , which depicts a scene from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Ed Org is another artist generating a lot of interest on WonderStreet. Though his The Lady of the Lake drawing could easily be mistaken for another Ophelia, it is actually an interpretation of that mysterious figure who gives King Arthur his sword in the legends of Camelot.

Abigail Ahern is a designer, whose style could best be described as "cowboy chic." A piece that got a lot of attention in our home decor gallery is the Bulldog Lamp from Abigail's collection of earthenware and taffeta lamps. This fun piece would certainly liven up a room with its "tough guy" charm.

Wishing you all an inspiring week!
