I love this girl's work. I met her, you know, Mechtild, at Oxonmoot in 2001.

Her limpid watercolour style is beautiful. :)

You met her? What's she like? She's got a HUGE boy of Tolkien illustrations, not just for LotR. I'm very impressed. I don't always love the way she does faces--I don't mean their actual features but the technical skill with which she does them. They often lack specific expression, specific to the situation I mean. But some are excellent. And I always love the way she reneders the natural scene, and her colours are wonderful. She stays within the subdued range I like so well in Alan Lee's work, giving the works a bit of pictoral distance, as if they really are pictures of another time and place, not somewhere in the same world as ours.
