Thank you so much for the pleasant transaction :) Sanna is beautifully painted! and the lovely touches with the box and packaging just completed it! Thank you so much I will be sure to buy from again.


Not all wanderers are lost...

The Hinterfolk inhabit the Hinterlands, an imaginary world, partially inspired by the dark, forested landscapes local to me (where I spend a lot of time mountain biking).

They are made from turned wood and the antlers are made from wooden dowel.

They are all carefully hand painted by myself to my own designs, which are influenced by a mixture of traditional folk costume from around the UK & northern Europe and my own imagination. They either come in limited editions of 50 or smaller, so you know that you have something quite unique.

People can pick a character they identify with, or maybe just like the look of! A little figure to watch over your home. I can also paint custom ones with characters & back stories to suit individuals' personalities.

There's Astrid, who's quite a straight-laced, practical, homely sort who likes to get things done, Greta, who's wild and carefree and quite fiery, Sanna, who's thoughtful, introspective and magical and Yak Girl & Yak Boy, who live in a mountainous land and ride Yak companions.
