Terese Bast

Terese Bast is a Finnish artist whose work I - and Saskia - love.

Clockwise from top left: Autumn, Meeting Point, Soft and Solid and Sweet Dreams.

The mossy boulders, groves of trees and rich, natural colours remind me of life right outside our windows in Deep Cove.

I purchased Autumn months ago, and finally got around to getting it framed and hung. The matting and framing is always the rate-determining step for me; I have stacks of prints languishing in a cardboard box in my study, waiting to be put behind glass.

Saskia's room is the best decorated in the house, as Autumn joins Green Girl and some of Cicely Mary Barker's flower fairies.


Bast's work is available for purchase through her website, in her Etsy shop and through various vendors.
