House of Illustration fair

All super busy here in the studio in the run up to Christmas. Leading on from opening my studio in June with Suffolk Open Studios, many of my visitors asked to come back near Christmas, so this Sunday 22nd November and again on 6th December I will again be opening my studio door for visitors, from 10am to 4pm. It's a great chance for people who follow me and my work to come and take a look around my small studio, browse through sketchbooks, see my folios of work, and have a chance to buy my work. It also is a great opportunity for me to meet those wonderful people who support me, either through their kind comments or by buying my work and commissioning pieces.
There will be originals, prints, cards, mugs, hand painted decorations and gifts to buy, so hopefully you will find an ideal unusual pressie.

But it is still head down and on with work, as I have been accepted (along with my daughter Lizzy, 3rd year illustration BA at NUA) to have an exhibit/stall at the wonderful House of Illustration Christmas illustrators fair at kings Cross in London on 12th December. We are so excited to be part of this, a great opportunity to showcase what we do to likeminded art lovers. It sounds like it's going to be a big event, over 100 illustrators plus workshops too. I will of course have various things for sale, plus a sketchbook on the go, as I always do at fairs (people do love to see work in progress) a couple of folios too. Lizzy will be showing and selling her stunning floral prints and colouring in books (yes she's on the band wagon so to speak, but her floral line work really suits these mini books). But mainly for her it will be the experience to be in a hub for her future industry, you never know who may pick up a business card and I know her work will blow your socks off! I will be so proud to have her with me. Lizzy is the 4th generation to be arty, My mum Liz Hubbard, did machine embroidery and sold at Libertys and Harrods, and her mum Mary Robertson was a renowned oil painter and highly collected especially in North Norfolk. Our work is so very different to each other, but Lizzy has an eye for botanical art like my mum did. So do excuse me at the fair if I'm doing the proud mum thing!
the fair is free entry, so do pop by and take a look and support the creative arts, buy something individual, hand crafted, or limited edition.
