Yes I am still living…

Here’s some illustrations I’ve been working on  recently for the Ten Plus exhibition at Newcastle Under Lyme (Uk).

Door.The Hen and the Jackal pictures are my interpretations of scenes in a story told by the Basotho People of Lesotho in Africa. I came across this in Kathleen Ragan’s book “Fearless Girls, Wise Women & Beloved Sisters”. The Blue Bird is my illustration of a traditional Polish story and the Tall House picture is my interpretation of a small scene from The Tinderbox by Hans Christian Andersen.

I’ve worked on a series of cards following the domestic adventures of Horace the Snail, some of which will be on sale at the exhibition too…
