Folk Art Moon Godess
Megan Ivy Griffiths is a pattern designer, illustrator and embroiderer who is based in the glorious green countryside of Hampshire. She harbours an ardent passion for the beautiful and unusual and is inspired by whimsical fairy tales and calm ambles through forests and fields. Her work is a concoction of tenderness, gentility and intricacy. Megan makes fabric animals that seem to have jumped out of mythical worlds.
They include farmers, mermaids, lions, llamas and rabbits – all dressed in Megan’s beautiful decorative folk embroidery. In this way, her stitches tell stories; as a trained illustrator she has been taught to draw, as well as using pen and pencil, she uses needle and thread to create captivating characters.
Moon Goddess is one of three characters specially commissioned for the museum, also available are a hare and a magical cat.
