art show

Jennifer Duff came upon my blog a few months ago when she was looking for information about making braided jean rugs, and it just so happened she is a gallery owner with an interest in children's art, and it just so happened I live about 5 miles from her gallery. I love the internet.

She graciously gave me the opportunity to have a solo show this month at her space, the Davis Gallery. I took full advantage and made it a retrospective with 37 originals from all 7 books, two Cricket Magazine covers, and a few from Peaceable Kingdom cards and posters. Counting up the years in order to properly title the show, "Painted Pages: 15 Years of Children's Book Art" was a little daunting. So was the framing, so I called my mum who cheerfully came down and matted all weekend. We took over pretty much the whole house.

The show is really nice and so is Jennifer's family who helps her run the gallery. My work is up in the main space until April 11, and stays in the second gallery until May.

My mum never lets me take her picture, but Pip does!
