I have been to many open houses and studios as part of the Brighton Festival and I thought it about time I had a go!
The people whose work is showing alongside mine, are people whose work I greatly admire.
Anne Maxfield is my mum and I have grown up being surrounded by her creativity and beautiful creations.
Chrissie Davies, Little Bird, I stumbled across as we were on the same foundation course and her work is simply stunning.
I became aware of Leigh Hodgkinson’s work when I was teaching part time at Hull uni. Her sketchbooks already conveyed what a crazy genius she is!
Helen Locke I met on the MA illustration course (we later became sister in laws) and I love her inventiveness and use of colour.
I met Sara Cahill because our daughters attend the same school, and I fell in love with her paper collages!
