Woodland Alphabet


I am really enjoying working on a diverse range of book projects, pop-up books, board books, and four different craft/make books. However, it does mean my time is limited in terms of self-motivated projects. I am trying to get some done, as it brings me a lot of joy and it sometimes leads to new book ideas. Here is the finished Woodland Alphabet print. I am rather fond of the Fox character, which I named Oscar after, er . . . Oscar! I also have a warm spot for the Bear, who I think slightly regrets the decision to wear a bow tie.

The print will be available in the Finch and Robin shop as well as my Notonthehighstreet shop. If you are visiting Edinburgh anytime soon (the festival is coming!), it will also be in stock in the Red Door Gallery and Curiouser and Curiouser.


Photos from the @NtlMuseumsScot Mammoth night with @RedDoor_Gallery

The Red Door gallery was set up amongst the wonderful creatures in the animal galleries, whilst in the main hall there were flash mobs. My friend and fellow illustrator, Laura Manson, helped us put together around 300 cut-out-and-make Mammoths. My fingers were sore the next day . . . hardcore. It was a wonderful night and I was delighted the Red Door invited me to take part. I will certainly be going back to more Museum Lates – maybe I will get to drink more wine as a guest! Here are a few photos from the evening (the first courtesy of the Red Door Gallery).

I have decided to start a blog. I must admit I was concerned to take on something else, but I have often thought it would be nice to share work in progress, plus anything interesting I have come across! So, for my first entry I have posted details about the postgraduate group exhibition at the Red Door Gallery. I have never organiised an exhibition before, but this was small and I got a lot of help! We were all really pleased with the work produced on the concept of ‘flight’. If you are visiting Edinburgh in the next month please pop into the Red Door Gallery and have a look.
