Artwork description:

I am currently exploring British animals and their roles in shaping our mythology. Since their introduction to Britain by the Romans hares have had an important part to play in our stories and legends, whether it's the Cornish White hare or Alice's Mad Hatter.

The link between the hare and it's literary importance is symbolised by my use of an antique book cover as my painting ground. The cover is over a hundred years old with beautiful tatty corners and areas of wear and tear. The hare itself is painted in acrylics and I have initialled the front and signed the back.

Edited October 2019: I have now had this artwork professionally framed as it was exhibited earlier this year. A photo has been added but I apologise for the reflections on the glass! The frame is a lovely, square profile, black stained wood and the artwork has been double mounted to accentuate it's 3D nature.
Any questions, get in touch!

Unfortunately, due to the weight of the piece and the glass glazing I can only ship within the UK.
