The Hermitage

Painter, illustrator, maker of clocks & teller of tales, who travelled in a house on wheels to the edge of Dartmoor and now sits there amongst books and paint finding beauty in otherness..

This will be a scrapbook of ideas, visuals to inspire, and snippets from my own journey.

I know that my role as an artist is to provide an opening for voices and stories that go beyond my own small, private existence.

—Tori Amos (via awritersruminations) (via booklover)

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
