I was commissioned to create a fairy for a very special young woman, named Petra, who is 19. She lives in NZ and is a truly inspirational young woman. She was diagnosed at age 6 with cancer and spent her whole childhood battling it.

Before her diagnosis, as a little girl, she always wanted to be a Fairy Princess, but Petra had to become a Fairy Warrior to take on the huge battle.She recently wrote a children's book called "I'd Rather be a Fairy Princess".So, I took her wonderful vision and imagined her little fairy grown up into a strong, brave, fearless fairy continuing the fight for all the other kids as well.

This is the first time I coloured the wire.  I made the accessories separately and spray painted them before adding to the fairy.

This fairy stood at about 450mm tall.

If you would like to know more about Petra's story or to get a copy of her book, her fb page is Petra Vision.
