Linocuts by the artist Rob Barnes


Fine Weather Lapwings

Rob Barnes' artwork follows themes, such as light 
on water, or shadows in the landscape. His linocuts are 
inspired mainly by the landscape of East Anglia
'Living half a mile from the river Yare in Norfolk, I look out across 
the marshes in one direction and across open fields in the other. There are 
muntjac deer and hares in winter chasing across the fields opposite. As spring 
approaches, there are times when I could almost sell tickets for the display 
of hares chasing and competing. There can be as many as ten in the field 
and they can be surprisingly large. I see them as silhouettes 
against the light and they never stay still for long'

Artworks by Nick Hunter Woodcarver from Sheffield, UK:

'Friends have ganged up on me and persuaded me that it's a bit 
of a waste if my work stays in my workshop in the dark. 
Now I'm getting them 'aired' with the help of Etsy'

 A group of women from the Calton, early 20th century.
These women are wrapped up warm in their shawls. Woolen shawls had
been common outerwear for women in rural areas of Scotland for generations.
They became fashionable among working-class Glasgow women during the mid-late
19th century, as mills in the city and in towns such as Paisley mass-produced
these simple, often colourful garments for sale at relatively low prices

Agnes - on her way for Easter dinner in Beaconhill


Kerry O'Gorman did it again -  made the sweetest
needle felted artwork; meet Agnes! Wow, I adore her!

Agnes is right on time to catch the #5 to Beaconhill for Easter dinner 
with family and friends. She's packed some treats in her little suitcase for the 
kiddies and she has her sensible shoes and her dogwood flower pin on. 

She can be yurs! Purchase Agnes here:


Agnes is made by working a sharp barbed needle into unspun wool 
thus matting the fibres together. The more the roving is worked the tighter the mat 
and sculpting can begin. After a desired shape is formed, details are added including eyes, 
horsetail whiskers, shoelaces, flower pin, hat, sweater and bag (also needle felted).This takes 
many hours of work by hand. Her little sweater is an upcycled piece knitted by Kerry O'Gorman
Agnes is adhered to a base which is signed and dated by the artist as well as an i.d. tag 
sewn inside her skirt. She is almost 22 cm - or 8.5" tall. Note: This is 
not a toy and not intended for children!
