Taking much of her inspiration from the English countryside, Mia uses what she sees as she works in her forest garden or walks the fields and footpaths near her home, as a meditation upon the wonder and mystery of nature.

THE MARGARET RODING TRIPTYCH – Marguerite of the Rodings

Inspired by the story of St. Margaret of Antioch, after whom the village of Margaret Roding and the church of St. Margaret’s have been named, the artist has interpreted the story in a triptych composed of six woodcut prints, setting it in the village.

The individual panels have been seen as representing the beauty of the world, the mystery of the spirit and the richness of the imagination. St. Margaret’s feast day is celebrated on 20th July.
