Rema Staines: Once Upon O'Clock

Rema Staines is an artist, an illustrator, a painter and a clock maker who lives in an old cottage on top of a hill on the edge of Dartmoor. She creates beautiful paintings on rustic slices of wood of all shapes and sizes.

"Rima’s inspirations include the world & language of folktale; faces of people who pass her on the street; folk music & art of Old Europe & beyond; peasant & nomadic living; magics of every feather; wilderness & plant-lore; the margins of thought, experience, community & spirituality; & the beauty in otherness."

You can view more of her pieces at Once Upon O'Clock or follow her blog for updates on her new work.
