Sheila Faichney - illustrator

I have just received a link to my friend, Sheila's new website. Go and have a look if you like wonderful, quirky, exotic pictures, and musings. Sheila lives in Scotland but has a special place in her heart for the islands, and has lived, worked and visited Orkney and Shetland.

The last thing that I saw of Sheila's work was the lovely book that she illustrated for Lawrence Tulloch, storyteller, raconteur and all round good egg from Yell. He and Margaret, his wife, live now in North Roe, where Lawrence continues to write and guide and tell stories, and Margaret works in a local hotel. If you ever get a chance to pick up "The Foy" by Lawrence which Sheila illustrated, do it. You can also get the book at the Shetland Times bookshop in Lerwick. You won't regret the read!
