Artwork for The Shetland Trader

The artwork for The Shetland Trader was done by my aunt Maggie Riegler. At the time of doing the painting she was unaware that I had become passionate about knitwear and it wasn’t until I wrote to ask her permission to use the image that I found out the girl in the picture was supposed to be me! Quite a coincidence…some things are meant to be!

The other image included here is also by my aunt and represents my parents return to the Shetland Islands and to their wee renovated croft in Sandness.
