Open Studios!


I'm getting reading for the most exciting event of the year here in my studio. For three weekends in June I will be opening my workspace to the public. And this year it's not just me. I've invited three amazing local artists to join me: Tania Busschau, Gill Cann and Jill Goodchild.

Our artwork, as you can see, is very different in style and media, but I think we complement each other brilliantly. We'll all be here to chat with visitors, demonstrate our techniques and run workshops. And, of course, we will be selling stuff too.
We will be offering a FREE Drop-In-And-Draw activity on launch day, Saturday 2nd June and some great workshops through the month. Check out the Surrey Artists' Open Studios site for details.
My own workshops can be booked via my shop link above so do take a look and secure your place as numbers will be limited.
Check back here for updates as we get closer to the June launch.

Jumping at my desk about Ember

It seems my first ever book is still being discovered and enjoyed by new readers. This makes me very happy indeed, as you can probably imagine.
This week I was sent a 'Book Report' by a chap called Dexter (aged 9 and 3/4) and was delighted to see that he had chosen to write about Ember Fury. Turns out Dexter is a pretty good author himself. The report was really well written and I was pleased to hear that all my favourite bits of Ember Fury are Dexter's too. Instead of focussing on Ember's attention-seeking fire-starting or the crazy desert car chase with Finn, Dexter chose the scene where Em gave the chauffeur the slip and ended up in the comic book store as his fave (which was, incidentally, the best scene to write).
His favourite character was Ned, whom I ADORE too, almost more than Ember (shhh, don't tell her!). Dexter also liked my drawings and said they were 'amazing' which made me jump up and down at my desk (Dangerous as I'd just made a hot mug…

2017! Yay!

Happy New Year! Lots happening in 2017, particularly in the next few weeks, so I'm a little too busy to blog. I'll be back soon to update you on the launch of 'Electrigirl & the Invisible Thieves' in May, my exciting museum project, my next illustration commission for Barrington Stoke and two new spooky book projects I'm hoping to complete and submit later this year, one for 7-11s and one for YA/adults.

Surrey Artists' Open Studios

What a glorious weekend!
The spectacular weather has really shown off my new studio. The light has been wonderful, the perfect gallery space. The garden looks pretty great too. I've been asked for contact details of my landscaper, Jeff Roots, by LOADS of people and then yesterday he turned up with his family to see the fruits of all his hard work (and my planting, obvs!)

I had lots of visitors over the first two days and can't wait 'till next Saturday. I'll be open 11am - 5pm on the 11th, 12th, 18th & 19th June, so come along if you can. www.surreyopenstudios.org.ukClick HERE for details of all the other studios, maps and trails.
