All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Green Man Tree Calendar

Visual Artist Venessa Lagrand is currently creating a series of green men inspired by the Celtic tree calendar. She has created four pieces so far: Oak, Holly, Ash and Vine. Made of Fimo the pieces are wonderfully detailed.

Venessa was born in Kent and spent her early years in Luxembourg where her father was working until she returned to Cornwall in 1980. Her mother was born in Cornwall and her father is Dutch and both have influenced the direction of her work.

“Cornwall is such an inspirational place for a visual artist with its pure light, surrounded by the sea and ocean, its beaches and wild moorlands. I am also interested in Celtic art since my maternal grandparents were both of Celtic origin, my grandfather Irish and my grandmother Cornish”

You can see three of Venessa’s green men here:
