Currently I’ve been creating characters and one of them is Millie Marigold a 5-year-old girl with strawberry blonde hair. She lives in a Red Roofed House on the edge of the forest. I’ve still got to think of the stories I want to tell. I’ve been working in a nursery this summer, which has given me a great insight as to what kind of book that children love. FUN, RHYTHMS and CHEEKINESS.
For a present to myself this summer I’ve brought a sewing machine, which I been playing about with adding fabric to my illustrations here is Millie with her stripy top and frilly skirt on.
And here is Millies House with the fabric colourful tree tops
