Welcome to the blog and this collection of original artwork inspired by The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R Tolkien's wider mythology of Middle-earth. Aside from the influence of the source writing of Tolkien influence is also drawn from Director Peter Jackson's film trilogy (2001-2003) and the highly regarded Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe. The magnificent musical score written for the film trilogy by Howard Shore also holds a significant influence upon the atmospheric and evocative quality of the works in this collection.

Mines of Moria makes the cover of Review Ripon

Thanks to Claire Slee editor of Review Ripon for the invite to have The Mines of Moria feature on the front cover of the magazine's February issue.

Of note to local Tolkienists and readers of this magazine will be the photographic references to the architecture of our local Spa Baths in the piece.

A site of beauty, currently undergoing renovation, and a Tolkien fan's treasure trove the Mill is a key location in Birmingham's link to J.R.R Tolkien.
