These images were inspired by my local favourite trees and places within walking distance from my home at the time in Northumberland.
They are a combination of photography of the blossoms on trees, and various wild flowers in this area, combined with drawings of the elemental spirits I was aware of that inhabited those areas, and the trees and flowers concerned.
I would feel a heightening of energy with a sparkling radiance as I sketched these figures. I then combined them with the photographs taken, and these images convey the images of the spirits there quite well, as it helps others who can’t see them, to visualise them more effectively.
I feel they are oasis-like images that re-create that feeling of calm joy that I would feel when going about doing these images, and wish to convey that to those who may be interested. I hope that others are happily affected by the images as I was.
