Dear Mrs. Pettit
Thank you so much for creating this lovely little fairy book “500 fairy motifs”. You made my daughters so happy! My older girl Mira (5) loves drawing. She starts at 7am and just wouldn’t stop. As they both love fairies I thought its a good idea to give them some inspiration. I have always loved fairies myself and was thrilled when I got the books of Cecily Mary Barker some years ago from England, as in Switzerland where we live there is not so much on the market. Last week I found your book on the internet because I was interested in the different artists. I must say I loved your drawings, as I look for innocent little children fairies……….etc
Myrea Pettit UK Fairy Artist Extraordinaire has sent her daughter 16 year old Elle currently in Melborne, onto a special mission when she reaches Sydney in two weeks time to report first hand on the results of saving the Fairy Penguins as reported today by the BBC.
Have you ever thought or asked whether there might be any stage of history that women could be knights? Probably the historic personality of female chivalry best known is that of Joan of Arc, also known as Jeanne d’Arc.
These thoughts and ideas troubled director and Multi-Arts-Artist Negrone Rivera de Buenaventura Braunstein who was inspired and motivated to develop her project “Women Were Also Knights”. Her project, started as a musical performance, and developed quickly into other directions with many exciting and artistically challenging ideas. Based on Buenaventura’s long experience in theatre, television and concerts (national & international) she was able to creates “The Knights Tarshari Women.” Phase One of her production was set in the Bavarian forest the fantastic pictures of “Wylls Goda”, “Cara Saragerel” or “princess Aguela Adelita”, to name just a few of the characters were taken by the well-known German television photographer Marco Orlando Pichler. These multicultural Knights are not only witty, sensitive, strong and intelligent, but also vulnerable and loyal – and they are fighters. The audience will recognize immediately that Buenaventuras characters are dedicated horsewomen with a passion, the very talented members of the “Duke Tassilo-knight” from Rehling in Bavaria.
Phase two is the Mystical ensemble of Buenaventuras creative spirit and is based on an important part of the “Women Were So Knights’ project, is known as the” Cutarlwyetel fairies and elves of the forests of Nobiobi-Whatcey. The Cutarlwyetels show impressive acrobatics, they wear beautiful costumes and all of them live and play in a mystical place. The world-famous Parisian acrobats “Duo Iouvilov” traveled to Germany and turned magically into the Fee “Gewels,” the Elf “Daron Dawn” and other fairy tale figures. Buenaventura, financed, directed and launched “Women Were So Knights” she is currently in discussions with companies who sponsor cultural arts and is looking for more support to develop her theme worldwide, meanwhile she is busy completing the book of “Women Were also Knights” Buenaventura has but one goal to tell the world and that is, history tells us that “Women were also knights,” and they should not be overlooked!
