Indulge Your Imagination In Every Possible Flight!

”Indulge your imagination in every possible flight.”
– Jane Austen,
 Pride and Prejudice

Most excellent advice!
Have you had a chance to relax and let your imagination take flight this summer?
My Jane Austen painting image is now available as a mounted print, ready to pop into an A4 frame and up on your wall to help your thoughts wander into the realms of fiction and fantasy as autumn approaches….

I nipped over to North Wales for a few days last week, where I relaxed and let my thoughts wander: resting up a tree above Dorothea Quarry; floating about in the beautiful
Llyn Nantlle (not for long- it wasn’t warm!!)

”To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.” – Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

This time in 2 weeks I will be setting up my stall at the fabulous Wigtown Book Festival. It will be so lovely to be back there again after two years of postponement 🙂
The festival runs from Friday 23rd September to Sunday 2nd October. There will be some fabulous author events including Anna ReidLauren ChildJohn Boyne and many, many others..
Also a performance from The Bookshop Band, a folk duo singing songs inspired by books 🙂

I will be on my stall in the Kist Marquee from Wednesday 28th to Sunday 2nd and look forward to seeing some of you there 🙂

 

Best Wishes,

Inspiring Gift Ideas From Yorkshire Artists :-)

Christmas is coming…….

This year I’ve been inspired to give my lovely family and friends treasure trove shoe boxes full of little gifts, rather than one big gift.

It is so much more fun choosing them 🙂

I’m also opting to shop independent and support my fellow artists and makers.

I would love to share with you my top 25 gifts inspirations for £25 and less from creators around West Yorkshire to give your Festive present ideas a boost!
