Insects Vs Sinister Fairies

I've just discovered the work of Artist Tessa Farmer.
She depicts a world where tiny, sinister, skeletal fairies are at battle with our world.
They battle with insects and collectively take down bigger prey like Hedgehogs, Rats and Snakes.
It's fascinating, atmospheric and disturbing stuff invoking feelings of childhood nightmares and evil lurking just out of sight.
I've become an instant fan of her work and hope I get the chance to check some out in person soon.
There's an interview with her over at the Saatchi website and you can find her official site at tessafarmer.com
