back in the saddle!

even though it's been the summer holidays with considerable downtime, i managed to sneak quite a bit of 'doing time' inorder to finish a project for 'The Point Theatre' in Hampshire. This is an exhibition called 'art lover', the remit being to produce work in response to a love poem. It starts on September 16th and runs until 16th December. I've chosen to illustrate lines of poetry from one of my favourite books called 'Astrid and Veronika' by Linda Ollson. I've read this book a few times now and it always makes me cry. Why crying would make you want to read a book again, I don't know, that's the mysterious thing about being female......

I am going to be producing giglee archival prints from some of these shortly. The originals are available now on my folksy site, with the prints to follow shortly.
