Katya, Tomas and Aurek….

Katya collects books on wildflowers and spends her days painting delicate watercolours which she leaves in all sorts of places for strangers to discover and enjoy. Under bottles of milk left at the villagers front doors, tucked in hedgerows and hanging from tree’s. Nobody knows the identity of the mysterious artist but each picture is a delight and is treasured each new owner.

Tomas likes nothing better than to walk for miles and miles through river and forest, over hills and stone walls, making new discoveries every day. His home is filled with treasures found on these adventures. Ghostly moth wings and ancient fossilised branches that twist and turn into human like forms. On each journey, he leaves a trail of scattered acorns as a temporary reminder of the hours spent walking over untrodden paths.

Aurek lives in a white washed windmill with pale blue doors and windows and ivy that twists it’s way up to the top and around the now silent and still sails. The curved walls are covered in bookshelves, home to the many antiquated volumes that have been handled and read over and over again.
