Over the past year I have been working with The Art Group on a series of greetings cards based on my Comfort Food Exhibition. These are available to buy through Paper Chase, W.H Smiths and many other stationers throughout the U.K. They are a series of crocheted foods ranging from Fish and Chips, sardines on toast and fried breakfast to name just a few. I have also created a Christmas dinner and mince pie cards for Christmas this year, so keep an eye out for them when they hit the stores over the next few weeks.

The Art Group is excited to announce that will be having its first ever gallery exhibition showcasing works from their most accomplished artists, des!igners, illustrators and photographers. I have been invited to take part in this exhibition which starts on Tuesday 1st December and will run until Saturday 5th December. It will be held at The Maverik Showroom, 68-72 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch (close to the top of Brick Lane)

I will be creating a few special pieces for this exhibition as the title of the show is called 'Let's Play' So make sure you make a space in your diary as this is a show not to be missed
