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.

Butterfly Collection

I have a large collection of very tatty old books,
If they are past saving I get busy with a scalpel.
I've made a little collection of butterflys using original pages
from a book of Grimms' Fairy Tales illustrated by Arthur Rackham.
They will be appearing in my etsy shop anytime now.

Afternoon Tea

I had a proper day off on Sunday,
took tea with the birds and squirrels at Jack Drake's
It was all rather nice.
I'll take my sketch book with me next time though.

New work on etsy

 Due to other work piling up (which is a good thing! )
i'ts been a while since I had anything new in my etsy shop
 but I've just uploaded this owl and a raven to the site.
I think for my next blog I'll try and do a work in progress report
 and I'll photograph the various stages of one of my little creations.

Red Toad

I was walking in the hills above Loch Katrine last week and saw a red fox,
 we had a staring contest and he blinked first, disappearing with a swish of his bushy tail.
On Friday on another hillwalk in Wester Ross I found a red toad
Any guesses what the next red beastie I see will be?
