Jo Sweetings Open House

I will be having I think mostly my two sets of alphabets , amongst other prints in Jo Sweetings Open House at 72 Ashford Road, Fiveways, Brighton on the weekend of November 16th-17th.

I'm really pleased to have been asked because the many wonderful and various artists and makers will make it a great house to be part of, and it's always good to hopefully find some unique Christmas presents, and then keep hold of them.

Sussex Gardeners

Here's the third book I've illustrated for Snakeriver Press -'Inspiring Sussex Gardeners'. It's a very interesting book and I like that Lorraine has written about some gardeners who are completely self-taught, and that the gardens ranges from very grand affairs to individuals veg patches - well, maybe a bit more than that!

There is also a good mix of gardeners from past and present, and from well-known to not so well-known.
My illustrations are simpler- a bit more graphic than the previous two books, ' 20 Sussex Churches' and '20 Sussex Gardens' and I think better for that.
