Lucy McLaughlin at Lazarides Gallery

Some really beautiful abstracts in a variety of media, at this London show until Saturday 18th.
Lucy's new work achieves some wonderful contrasts, with printed wood grain in monotone and eye poopping day-glo orange.
I love the confidence of Lucy's trademark feather brush strokes, and the use of them in  abstract composition. You can read more about her work here: and here:

That time again...

I've been uploading this years Christmas cards onto my 'Not on the High St' page today. 
Every year I make a few designs, which I block print onto simple white board. I like that the cards are black and white, it seems to make them stand out amongst the vast choice on the site.
Delivery for card packs is free this year. Here's the link: 
Look out for some other new products, including my notecard packs, very soon (with any luck, tomorrow!).

Rosie Moss

Last year at the Christmas craft fairs at Midland Arts Centre I found these beautiful designs by Rosie Moss. Her wonderful illustrative style is printed onto fabrics which are used for purses, bags and cushions.
I bought a couple of purses from her, intending to give them as gifts, but found I couldn't part with them. They are so beautifully made, and the designs are really enchanting.
So, I paid a little visit to Rosie's website: and learned from her blog that she is a fan of the great Enid Marx. A copy of 'English Popular Art' has been on my desk for most of this year, and I was delighted to see much of the Marx folk art collection at the recent Tate show.
