The Henkeeper's Almanac
The Henkeepers' Almanac was an exciting collaboration with poet Jean Atkin. I made illustrations for her fascinating poems based on her observations of her hens through the seasons on her Dumfries and Galloway smallholding. Where I sketched and painted her elusive hens when we could track them down . I settled on a form of Paper Batik for the illustrations with large paintings. I have also produced a range of hand coloured solar plate etchings with verses in calligraphy by my friend Jenny Edwards.
The lovely book of poetry can be obtained from Jean Atkin.
