About Me

My photo
I'm a nature obsessed artist who lives in an little house in a little vilage in the Highlands of Scotland.I wander around a lot in the wilds and spend time just looking at things like birds and moths and trees and rocks. The rest of the time I'm drawing or painting, making odd things out of old stuff and drinking giant cups of peppermint tea. Imogen Greene is my pen name. I like the way it sounds and it just kind of suits what I do.

Lochnagar in winter plumage

On Sunday G and I decided to go walking at Lochnagar.
Despite the mist and wind and cold it was at times quite magical.
The ice formations and snow drifts made crazy patterns, 
and the wind blew a flying ptarmigan in a curve towards us,
 it came so close I could see the panic in it's beautiful black eye.

Back to work today- I've been drawing toads and a roe deer skull
and now ptarmigan are next on the list.
