Queen Cassie's Craft Kit
Hello, I am Christy Kate Bennett, a Falmouth University undergraduate studying Illustration. I enjoy working in traditional media, particularly paint, pencils, and pen. I moved to Kent at the age of six from the United States and fell in love with the appropriately named, Garden of England. My British-born father's childhood memories of Cornwall brought me to study there so now I feel I belong in two places, the woodland and the sea, both of which are reflected in my artwork.
Gyllyflower is thus an illustration brand motivated by natural beauty. The name merges together the words, 'gillyflowers', an assortment of sweet-scented blossoms, and 'Gyllyngvase beach', a Cornish bay. It was inspired by my passion for depicting flora and the ocean. I want to give thanks, here, to the person who has helped make this project possible by working on this website with me and handling social media affairs, my sister, Megan Matilda Bennett. Te amo mi hermana.
