So it's finally hot off the presses fols, our third 'Girls Who Draw' postcard book MAGIC and I'm very excited. It features the work of eleven Illustrators including a few of our regulars Karoline Rerrie, Gemma Correll, Anke Weckmann, Sarah Ray, Currentstate (Ce Moi!), Yee King Tuit, Kate Hindley, Ruth Green, Mary Kilvert and two new contributors Alys Paterson and Beth Morrison. The book contains 22 gorgeous postcards and the covers were designed by the uber talented Kate Hindley.

An exhibition of the same name will take place at Solihull Gallery in 2011 and on to other venues later in the year. Keep an eye the blog and our tweets for more details. The book is available through my online shop Buy it, its Fab!

I got in to the AOI's annual publication IMAGES 34 this year. My work was selected for the exhibition which took place at The London College of Communication in Elephant and Castle on 7th Sept.

The exhibition is a selection of the best illustration commissioned in the UK with some 200 works in categories such as children's books, advertising and editorial. Pretty good to be shown along the like of Andy Potts. Here's my page in the book below.


Ok, this is my first post in ages. I've been pretty pants and updating my blog of late. And thats because I've been working on a big art commission for Wolverhampton Art Gallery. I'm working on four large paintings of a local community based around Phoenix park in Wolves. Its been a bit of a baptism if fire as it's my first oil paintings. Anyway its under wraps until its completion at the end of Oct. I'll pop up some images when its installed.

Over the summer thought I had great fun doing some photography for the festival annual. I covered Latitude and Shambala. I had a wicked time and the annual is Oct 2010. View my images on
