Ruby Rose in Time Out
Like Venus rising from the foaming sea, Ruby Rose stands stolidly on her rock and waits. “Ruby Rose was born as I thought about how hard it can be to communicate,” says artist Emily McPhie, “especially for children. I thought about what it must be like to be in time out, to feel so misunderstood and isolated and that those ten minutes are never ever going to end. As we get older, we learn more words and how to better share our feelings, but I find that once in a while that misunderstood, isolated, time-out feeling creeps up on us all. It’s then that we’re glad we’re finally old enough to tell time and that ten minutes isn’t so long after all.” The sweetly inspired works of Emily McPhie make a perfect addition to any nursery, office, bedroom or living area and the ideal gift for the new mother in your life.
