These sheep shearers belong to some shepherds that were camped out in the hills close to the village of Meșendorf in Transylvania.
In the early summer of 2015 I had the pleasure of travelling to Romania for a cycling trip. I was travelling with the Global Heritage Fund (GHF) and the trip was organised by The Slow Cyclist. With a mixture of cycling, walking and some driving we spent five days admiring the wonderful landscape and villages and enjoying the hospitality of the locals.
The GHF helps funding restoration work to preserve the vernacular architecture of the Saxon Villages, using traditional building techniques.

All prints are professionally printed to ensure the absolute best quality and consistency. I pride myself in strict quality control, hence I only use top professional printers based here in London, that I am content use very strict colour consistency checks and use the very best of printing techniques available. This of course greatly increases production costs, but give me and my customers the peace of mind that I deliver a supreme quality artwork.
