This finely detailed piece will be part of a book project just started exploring the lands/stories and
mythology of ancient Britain and surrounding influences (To follow Anita’s art projects please join the
group Starling Grove on Face Book).
This is the first piece inspired by the beautiful Shetland Isles and features Sheep Craig (Rock) and a little
Oyster Catcher as well as influences from vintage Fair Isle knitting.
Fair Isle is a sparsely inhabited and remote island in the Shetlands. Now made famous by the fictional
character Jimmy Perez from the novels by Scottish crime writer Ann Cleeves.
