Wildlife, myth & folklore

Celia Ward is currently exhibiting at the New End Gallery Hampstead in a show entitled "Wildlife, Myth and Folklore" which runs until 15th November. The Gallery write that:

"Celia Ward's pictures are beautiful. Whether it's her little egrets in their natural habitat at Stiffkey Marsh or wild violets in the wetlands, her pictures are more than just field guide illustrations but rather images that transport you into an enchanting world. Working in watercolour, tempera and gold she tells you stories of wildlife, myth and folklore, creating pictures of birds in flight, St. George and the Dragon, Romanian shamans and an alphabet gloriously belonging to the same ancient European tradition of manuscript illumination as the Book of Kells."
