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.

Portobello Makers Market on 15th December

I'm going to my last makers market of 2012 on Saturday, I was lucky enough to get one of the last remaining spaces! Portobello Makers Market is held in the Town Hall, Portobello High Street, Edinburgh on Saturday 15th, 11am to 4pm. This stag will be one of the new illustrations for sale. I'm hoping that the weather has improved by then and the snow has stopped falling as it's an early start and a longish drive. It will be interesting to compare my local craft markets with one in the" big city". I'll share my findings with you in my next post. At this time of year I spend some time taking stock, remembering what I've achieved (or not!) and thinking about goals for next year, so more of that soon too.

Afternoon walks

This was taken around two hours ago 3.30 pm - yes the sun does go down that early here in the north! It's been cold, a bit of snow in the morning, but sometimes that crisp wintery feeling is good. We found a tree full of siskins, busy little birds, and a gnawed salmon on the river bank. I think the otter had been having a feast.
 I've had a productive day adding more work to imogensattic, some jewellery pieces will be added tomorrow and I'm waiting to hear if I've gotten a last minute place at another art and craft fair, this time in Portobello, Edinburgh, so fingers crossed.
