'Winter Ptarmigan' is based on the Ptarmigan, a small, rather hardy game bird found in the highest mountains of the Scottish Highlands. During winter they lose their grey and brown feathers and become completely white.

Dee Beale is a printmaker/designer based in the UK where she designs and hand prints all her work from her small printmaking studio. Many of her prints are limited edition and produced on a Japanese Print Gocco. Print Gocco is small self-contained tabletop screen-printing machine first produced in Japan in the 1970s.

Many things including nature, animals and plant forms inspire her work. She is also a big fan of mid century art and design so a lot of the artists she admires are from that period including Lucienne Day, Jessie Tait, John Clappison, and Stig Lindberg.
