The Rat Queen

Artwork details: gouache, 4 x 6 inches (10 x 15 cm), 2006.

One of the 'Kings and Queens of Old England' series of miniatures.

Following 'The Frog Queen', this seemed like a rather nice idea for a little series. The Frog Queen is very serene, though I fear she is a little dim. The Rat Queen, on the other hand, is quite different in character. I like Rats, but you wouldn't want to meet this one on a bad day.

Prints & Original Artwork

You can now buy prints of my work (and a few originals) in my Etsy Shop. If you would prefer to buy direct from me, or you cannot find what you are looking for in the shop, feel free to email me instead: If you are interested in original artwork, I do intend to post a list of currently available artworks in due course, but I'm in the process of moving and re-building a main website, so for the meantime please also email me for more information on originals, and also commissions.
