A little update about the RHS show on the 11th and 12th April in Vincent Square, Victoria, London. I am delighted to have just found out that I will be painting with Julia Trickey! This is amazing as I am a big fan of hers. I love all of her leaf work and I really liked the big dried flower series she had on display at the RHS a couple of years ago. Julia has just had a first day cover released of her work by the Royal Mail, and you can see the complete series on both the Royal Mail website and in Gallery 6 on Julia's website.

Julia and I aren't the only artists working live. The talented Ann Swan will also be there, and Liv Healey, Emma Hardicker, Susan Entwistle and Hannah McVicar. Hannah illustrated the first 'Jekkas Herb Cookbook' and she also does a lot of work for one of my favourite magazines - Gardens Illustrated Magazine. I really like her bold screen prints, of which I have put an example for you all to see below. There will also of course be all the medallists on show. The RHS have published a list of exhibitors on their website if you are interested in this bit. I am personally looking forward to seeing this section of the show very much, as the accuracy and presentation of their illustrations is usually out of this world.
So yes, if you haven't booked your tickets to come and see us, please do! If you book for the PV, you get to come back as many times as you like over the two days and it's cheaper in advance. But please note, that we won't be demonstrating at the Private View - only on the Friday and Saturday.
