Minories & FirstSite Christmas Fair – Colchester

Saturday 3rd December I’ll be in the Minories with my stall for their Christmas Fair, then on Sunday my stall moves to FirstSite.

In the still, dark hours of the night I’ve been busy completing a 4-colour-block woodcut inspired by the Edward Thomas poem “Thaw“, plus finally completing my large Flow Country oil painting.

Both have been transposed onto small A6 greetings cards, which will be the main products available at the fair, along with a flyer for my Munsary Peatlands photobook, and of course copies of Merlin Magic.
More details about both these new artworks and their production in a subsequent blog. For the moment, if you are in the Colchester area this Saturday and Sunday, it would be great to see you.

Here’s the cards (which are also now available on my Etsy webstore):



Merry Christmas…!!

Having worked for 20 years in the UK statutory nature conservation agencies as Peatland Specialist in the Chief Scientist Team, I then moved to the University of East London where I ran the nature conservation degrees for several years. Now I mainly undertake research and support peatland conservation activities, including the IUCN UK Peatland Programme, within UEL's Sustainability Research Institute. I also paint.
