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.

Hare as Herald for Spring

Time in the studio has been passing by quickly, a bit like the start of this year which seems to have disappeared. The top brown hare is my Herald of Spring,  and below is the Blue Hare of Winter beating a hasty retreat....I suspect we will have a few more days of snow before winter is over though! Last Saturday was spent in the mountains at Lochnagar. It was a beautiful day matched by the wild life we saw-  woodpecker, red grouse, black cock, buzzard, short eared owl, hen harrier and two golden eagles plus both red and roe deer.  Fabulous!

It's been snowing on and off all day. I put the heater on and holed up in the studio this afternoon and managed to finish a fox that has been waiting patiently in my sketchbook since before Christmas. I did a larger than usual mountain hare too, sometimes you get in the flow and next thing I know it's dark.........

In the studio today...

New things are starting to happen in the studio, this badger will be going into my etsy shop soon and the insect collection box below is in development..... The exciting news is that I have been asked to take part in not one, but TWO exhibitions! One opens in April and the other in June. Yah!  

Better get back to work then.......
