Radio Interview!

I was interviewed on BBC Radio Bristol this week, about my books and about libraries, as part of their lead up to 'National Libraries Day'. It was my first time on the radio and I was a little nervous, but managed to get some words out in the right order and not make too much of a fool of myself!

It is available to listen again until the end of February, just click HERE I'm introduced around 47mins 30sec. (Just after the lovely George Ezra). Enjoy!

Brillustration at The Barn Gallery

Myself and Bristol illustrators, aka Brillustration, created a Christmas mural at The Barn Gallery, Wiltshire. All in a few hours! (With the help of mince pies and delicious mulled wine courtesy of the gallery).

It was a lovely day out and good to spend time together creating art just for fun and giggles!

Mark Sperring, children's author from Blackwells, Bristol, brought along all our published books, and sold many a Christmas present with plenty of personalized book signing!

Brillustration: Affordable Art Fair Take Over!

I joined Bristol Illustrators (aka Brillustration) at The Affordable Art Fair last weekend. I ran a workshop on the Saturday with Sean Julian, teaching little kids and big kids how to draw characters including bears, dinosaurs, woolly mammoths and robots.

And on Sunday, Brillustrators joined in 'en mass' and drew all over the walls, inviting the public to draw with us, we soon had a busy crowd of artists.

Story time at Hayesdown First school

I was invited to read my new book 'Little Lou and the Woolly Mammoth' at Hayesdown school in Frome recently. I had such a lovely time! The event was organised by Hunting Raven Books, I read my book to 2 classes and signed some copies too. I also left behind some woolly mammoth activity sheets for the classes to decorate.

I'm really enjoying reading my book aloud to children and seeing their reactions to the mammoth and little lou. And chatting to them about what else Little Lou could find at the end of a woolly thread, and their own favourite cuddly toys.

Thank you to Hayesdown first for having me and to Hunting Raven for organising the event. It was brilliant! And I hope the children feel inspired to draw their own woolly creatures :)
