About the Author

About Mrs Bertimus

Letitia Thompson's artwork is inspired by the slow pace and sense of community of her day-to-day village life. Being able to watch nature on her doorstep has permeated the imagery and storytelling of her work, and she continues to explore her make-believe world of painted, collaged and stitched characters. The name Mrs Bertimus was born from a neighbour's story of a blackbird that regularly visited for crumbs.

Letitia has worked in art education for over 20 years and loves meeting kindred spirits on her painting, mixed media and textiles workshops. She has exhibited across the UK, where she lives in a small village in the Lincolnshire countryside.
