Three artists well known to St Jude’s followers, Christopher Brown, Mark Hearld and Rob Ryan are involved in a fund raising project for The House of Illustration, the UK’s only public gallery dedicated to illustration and the graphic arts, founded by Sir Quentin Blake and opened at the heart of King’s Cross in July 2014.

This is Monica Poole's 'Piddock Architecture' wood engraving from 1975, one of the prints that feature in A Printmaker's Journey, the exhibition I've curated for Hampshire Cultural Trust which reopened at its final venue in Lymington last week.
We soon return to The Town House on Fournier Street in the heart of Spitalfields for an event co-curated with The Town House proprietor Fiona Atkins. The event, part of Shoreditch Design Triangle, will see the launch of the first in a series of wallpapers by Edward Bawden, forming part of our St Jude's Studio Archive range.
Later this year I'll be exhibiting at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh as part of A Fine Line, alongside Lizzie Farey (who I have co-curated the exhibition with), France Priest and Bronwen Sleigh. I'll be sharing further information about the event over the coming weeks. As part of the exhibition, there will be two work related workshops.
