About the Author(s)

Nathaniel Hughes has a background in the sciences – after completing a chemistry degree at Edinburgh University he studied herbal medicine at post graduate level for four years in Scotland. He has been in practice with both herbalism and healing now for over ten years. His work as a herbalist and healer is to dig through the layers to find root causes of disease patterns. This is often a fascinating work of investigation as layers peel away, identifying subconscious impulses that fundamentally affect how we use our bodies, and therefore, how our bodies ‘use’ dis-ease, telling us when something is out of balance.

Fiona Owen is a British artist, living and working in Gloucestershire. Fiona paints in oil on panel and gilds her work with 24ct. English gold leaf in the tradition of the Medieval manuscripts. Inspiration for her extraordinarily intricate, lyrical paintings is drawn from her native landscape – the flora and fauna and the changing seasons, and her Celtic inheritance. She endeavours to capture the elusive Wild Magic that is the genius loci – the spirit unique to each place. Her paintings are a celebration of, and a homage to, Nature.
