Knitwear and Badgers.

Crikey where does time go?? Clearly a New Years resolution ought to be to blog more…

So here’s some new work. It’s portfolio pieces imagined for a young chapter book, they’re loosely based on the idea of a girl whose jumper has shrunk- Oh no! Who would she ring for help?? Badger of course!

Open House

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted, I’ve been busily getting ready for our open house, www.thebirdhousehove.co.uk. Open houses are part of the Brighton Festival, open for four weekends in May, with over 200 houses and studios being open to the public. Look at some art, have a nose at a house, what’s not to like..AND lots of them have cake!!

We have 5 artists showing in our house. We have the amazing Chrissie Davies, ‘Little bird creations’ whose machine embroideries are stunning.
