by Flora McLachlan.
Framed in a dark wood framed. Size 44 x 45 cm.
Flora's pictures are of ancient and enchanted landscapes where guardian spirit-like animals roam, shadowed by woods where the holly springs green amongst the bare oaks and beeches.
Flora is inspired by the quests of medieval romance poetry – the idea of venturing forth into the wild world of trees and thorns, searching for a glimpse of the white hart.
She is a Fellow member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE), and became a Fellow in 2013.
Flora is now establishing a print workshop of her own in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, on the edge of a wild and scented moor, surrounded by lichened trees.
This work is shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of Fairy Tale.
