Pen and Ink Design

This small design, measuring around 10 centimetres harks back to my early days of drawing as a child when all I had was a bottle of black ink and a dip pen! I drew this design recently when I was away from home with few art materials.

Pyro-Art Piece 'In the Middle we Dance'

This eight centimetre Applewood slice was just right for my latest design, which takes inspiration from a wonderful. evocative verse by Rumi -

     'We came whirling out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.
     The stars made a circle and in the middle we dance.'

'Lady of the Greenwood'

This small drawing of my 'Green Lady' was created using coloured pencils on smooth white paper. The image of a Green Lady has been with me for a number of years, and was the inspiration for the name of my etsy shop 'House of the Green Lady'. I first drew her back in 2012 and named her 'Spirit of Albion'. This latest design is essentially the same figure, renamed 'Lady of the Greenwood' and depicted as a small head and shoulder image.
