Book Cover Illustration

‘She Didn’t Wave’

I was delighted to have been asked to produce an illustration for the cover of a book by Ian Mercer who has spent many years searching for the truth about his family’s past.  The story begins in 1920 when Ian’s mother was left at an orphanage at the age of 7 ….

Both Ian and myself are extremely pleased with the artwork and how it hints at the story behind the title.  A fascinating, true story of love and war.

Gallery Show

Featured artist @ Church House Designs Gallery

Visit this delightful gallery and bespoke gift shop in Congresbury where you will find my monochromatic landscapes of the Mendip Hills on display on the main gallery wall.  When delivering my work for hanging I couldn’t resist one of the landscaped ceramics, which seem to complement my work very well.

My work will be on display throughout June so if you are passing through Congresbury  do take a left turn opposite the Ship & Castle pub to seek out the gallery. churchhousedesigns.co.uk
