About the Author

About Mrs Bertimus

Being able to watch nature on her doorstep has permeated the imagery and storytelling of Letitia Thompson's work, and she continues to explore her make-believe world of painted, collaged and stitched characters. Her artwork is primarily inspired by the slow pace and sense of community of her day-to-day village life as is her nom de plume, Mrs Bertimus, which she took from a neighbour's story of a blackbird that regularly visited for crumbs.

Letitia has worked in art education for over twenty years and loves meeting kindred spirits on her painting, mixed media and textiles workshops. She has exhibited across the UK, where she lives in a small village in the Lincolnshire countryside.
