Illustrations & paintings. Sloesticia, Macedonia. 

The paintings were responding to and documenting scenes of village life that I witnessed in this remote mountainous region of Macedonia. The village was a contrast to my own rural village in the Highlands. Here people foraged from the woods, lived alongside wolves,  lived off the land, killed their own pigs, and worked in tobacco fields. I met a man who built his own church complete with icons. 

There was also a link with Skopje University were scientists were looking into the decline of River Crabs.
