Cards, books, and exhibitions!

Hello everyone! It's been busy, busy here. My cards have been causing me many trips to the post office, which is very good news!

If you are in the Norfolk area, then pop into St. Jude's in Aylsham, to pick up one of my cards. A beautiful little gallery, selling fabulous British art, craft and design. Feast your eyes on prints, fabrics, books, ceramics...the list is endless! The Gallery was set up and run by the Lewin's. 



The 1953 Coronation Mug.


Alliums and Fennel.


Angie Lewin, is a fantastic print maker, and her work is absolutely stunning. Here are two of my personal favourites that I wish I had bought. Sadly, they are no longer in print. Sob, sob.





St. Jude's also have a charming charity Christmas card, designed by the fabulous Rob Ryan. Another big favourite of mine! You can buy the card online at the St. Jude's website.


 The Smokehouse Gallery is another place you will find my cards. A wee gallery, in the cute little sea side town of Eyemouth. It is full of coastal scenes, pretty jewellery, books and cards. 
It is also the home of the Serafina Press, a small publisher of children's books. Each book is set in the Scottish borders, and has been lovingly written by Jennifer Doherty and beautifully illustrated by a variety of illustrators. 

It has been my job of late, to illustrate the new book in the series. The book is called 'The Sea Dancer at St. Abbs'. (For those of you who don't know...St. Abbs is a tiny little seaside village, a cove, snuggled into the Scottish north east coast. Sleepy, and beautiful, it is a wonderful setting for a children's story!) Here is a sneaky peak of work in progress! 





(The book should be on sale, around about Easter next year!)


Other news:  The Compass Gallery in Glasgow are showing my 'Impossibly Perfect Garden Party' poster design, in their Christmas Exhibition. They will be there for you to purchase!
