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.

I have been quietly working away on a variety of projects and have just managed to do some new things for my etsy shop which will be posted later today. Of all the work that I made for my latest exhibition, the feathers painting seemed to catch people's eye the most. I've always loved painting feathers and pick them up whenever I'm out walking, so I was a bit surprised when I realised that I'd never put any in my shop. Doh! I've also been thinking about doing some custom work on etsy so when I drew labels for the feathers ( I hadn't thought it through, they just happened because I've started to label my feather collection with the date and place found) I knew that they would make ideal custom items. The pairs of feathers somehow look like a "couple" and some well chosen words/dates on the labels could make them deeply personal, I'm thinking engagement, marriage, life changing moments and achievements. It will be interesting to see what kind of response they get.............

Thank you! I seem to be a bit obsessed with them at the moment.
