On the walls of my grandmother's home hung some paintings by her sister, my great aunt Agnes Clara Tatham. It was a pleasure to lose oneself in the content and stories depicted in these paintings; some with motifs from the Nordic and other mythologies, others family portraits and land-scapes. I have created this site in order to have a place where family, friends and admirers can share knowledge of and information about the life and works of Artist & Portrait painter Agnes Clara Tatham.
