Book of Poems

On the edge..
wedged between
hope and fear
with a clear

will you

and rise

This is one of 3 Handmade Books of Poems I’ve recently had fun making… with Coptic Stitch binding, recycled paper and some beautiful naturally dyed Lokta Paper from Nepal. The poem above is one of the 15 poems included…available from my Online Shop. Many thanks to all who visit. Much love..Mairi πŸ’™

Dream Scenes

Beautifully Impermanent…

I’ve been creating these mini paintings for the past year…for my Hand-Painted Art Cards (One-Off & Eco Friendly).

I never plan anything when I’m painting them….they just emerge…like Dream Scenes. At one point I realised that these little paintings never have any signs of human activity. How beautifully nature flows in the absence of human activity within my imagination… and in reality. Why are we the only species that so brutally and permanently carves our name on the landscape?

I’ve painted many of these wee paintings during this time, and they’ve found their way to people from my Online Shop. Some will have been framed; others will have been thrown away (they’re Eco Friendly though 🌼🌻 ). I like the thought of transient things that leave no permanent trace. Beautifully impermanent…like each of us. Much love…Mairi πŸ’™
