Hazel Brown

Hazel Brown has been a creative artist in all its forms for a great number of years, which has included illustration and calligraphy, also through teaching, both adults and children. She has collaborated with other artists on books on the Worlds of Faerie, worked closely with Brian Froud on the “Lady Cottington” books as a calligrapher, and produced paintings for a number of galleries on the subjects which inspire me, the sea and the landscape of Dartmoor where she lived.

Growing up by the sea, and spending long days sailing with her grandfather in his fishing boat, having the freedom to explore and investigate, with all manner of adventures, developed her imagination.

She expressed her her feeling of honor at being invited to write, illustrate and design a book about Sir Henry St. Clair, Earl of Orkney. She found the research extremely interesting and exciting. She stated that she became totally captivated by the story. She feels that today’s children, even with all the technology they have to hand, still need to hear the amazing stories and legends that surround our islands and especially about the bravery and courage of those men who took part in the Crusades and who set out to discover new lands across the Atlantic.

Growing up by the sea, and spending long days sailing with my grandfather in his fishing boat, having the freedom to explore and investigate, with all manner of adventures, developed my imagination.

I was greatly honoured to be included on the St. Clair Project, and to be invited to write, illustrate and design a book about Sir Henry St. Clair, Earl of Orkney. The research was extremely interesting and exciting. I became totally captivated by the story. I feel today’s children, even with all the technology they have to hand, still need to hear the amazing stories and legends that surround our islands and especially about the bravery and courage of those men who took part in the Crusades and who set out to discover new lands across the Atlantic. At present I am working on a children’s novel about the adventures of a little boy who has embarked on a journey with a group of faerie characters in a quest to rescue a magic Book of Wisdom.

I am also continuing my exploration on canvas into the landscape which I find to be so inspiring.
