“Inspired by our common inheritance of poetry, folklore and romance, my pictures tell stories sometimes seen but more often imagined by twilight or moonglow. I try to express the enchantment I feel in a landscape, a sense of its secret face revealed when the light fades and creatures come out to roam - the witching hour. “ - Flora McLachlan. Commanding sensitive images created through etching, aquatint and silverpoint convey the dark beauty of our mysterious ancient and rural countryside. Flora is able to catch both movement and stillness and to convey the powerful yet fragile harmony that juxtaposes our own contemporary style of living.
In 2008 Flora was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. She has regularly exhibited at the Bankside Gallery, the RA Summer Exhibition, the Ashmolean Museum and Henley Festival.
