Medieval Illustrations

I am very interested in Medieval style artwork, icons and story-telling. The characters and their personality, the imaginative ancient flora and fauna are great sources of inspiration.

I particulary like the stained glass-type long and narrow format, which I then frame with Celtic knot-work. Each image carries some symbols and a story each viewer can imagine at their leisure.

Each illustration is beautifully framed in plain natural oak.

Saint Nonita & Saint David
In the 5th Century, Nonita, daughter of Lord Cynyr Ceinfarfog Of Caer Goch
in Pembrokeshire and a devout nun, was taken by Prince Sandde of Ceredigion.
Gone into hiding, she gave birth to Saint David (Patron saint of Wales) in
the middle of a violent storm which turned into a sea of brilliant light.
Their lives were dedicated to the Christian faith.
