About Me - The Fireside Dragon by Rachael McDonald
The name 'The Fireside Dragon' was inspired by the idea that Dragons, mythologically fierce fire breathing creatures, are in fact gentle creatures wanting nothing more than to curl up on a rug by a roaring fire, have a nap and read a good book.  The Dragon that shares my life is called Nimlet and is my muse in the creation of my art work.
Inspired by nature, mythology and folklore I draw, paint and make a range of hares, dragons and other creatures; 
  • working in pen, ink and watercolour to create a range of images that are sold as greetings cards, prints and other items
  • working in clay to create friendly hares and dragons that love a fireside spot in the home
  • working in polymer clay to create elves and fairies that would be at home in the hedgerows of Wiltshire where I live.
All ceramics and jewellery are one of a kind and made without moulds; ceramics are finished using a variety of methods, including glazing and paint effects, fairies are dressed in organza, lace and ribbon and are finished with glittering wings and mohair wigs.
Cards can be purchased wholesale from Love From The Artist.  Please contact them if interested in the range.

I have also worked in Arts Management.
