Island of the Plant Rhys Dwfen

Island of the Plant Rhys Dwfen

Love your narrative Iona and it does a have an air of mystery about it.

Hang on Studio Wall

I stumbled across the Plant Rhys Dwfen ( the children of Rhys the Deep) and their 'ideas' of peace intruiged me so I further researched into this mythical folk. I was inspired to paint this landscape by the stories I read about them. They are a particular family of Welsh fairies who inhabit a hidden land where a plant of invisiblity grows. They are a particularly friendly lot, who would visit the market at Cardigan and spend huge amounts of money.
