For quite some time now I have felt the pull to 'The North' - Scandinavia, Iceland, Russia and of course Scotland. For me they are places where Nature more obviously dominates humans and I guess I like it that way.

 

Although this influence makes its way into my watercolour work it also draws me to paint on wood and I have discovered some delightful ways to do so.

 

As always each piece tells a story. So, in Time I hope to share with you some of these pieces and their stories on these pages - keep checking the website to make new discoveries... Some have gone to good homes already but some will soon be for sale.

A unique piece encapturing the legend of St Brendan the Navigator who, legend says, voyaged in a small wooden boat from Ireland via the Northern Isles and Iceland before finally reaching America in around 530 AD. The Tale is full of mystery and sea monsters as good good legends are.

The Rabbit Cabinet

 

A quirky piece of medieval mischief. 

A Lime wood Nevalyashka hand painted in acrylics and lacquer. A gentle nudge and it will rock pleasantly but never fall over. Inside is a beautiful bell that chimes with motion.

An indulgence into the quirky world of Medieval Marginalia, the elaborately detailed margins of sacred scriptures often hid a wonderful sense of humour. If you've never seen medieval margins before, it's well worth having a look! Although I cannot bear to part with this one I will be very happy to paint others when the time comes.
