Lucy Skinner, From Middle Earth, illustrations, Tue 25 Jun - Mon 5 Aug

In From Middle Earth I am illustrating many of the places that make up Tolkien's World. By referencing Tolkien's descriptions and hinting at the portrayal of these places in art and film, each piece is intended to exist like a postcard in time, capturing snapshots of Middle Earth as we travel through this most treasured realm.
