Exhibition at the Lidgett Lane Larder until October. Private view this Friday from 5-7pm

I am exhibiting work at the Lidgett Lane Larder, 99 Lidget Lane, LS8. 
As well as being a very friendly and great cafe where you can buy
 the best mozzarella, tomato and pesto panini I have ever tasted, 
it also doubles up as a rather lovely exhibition space. 
My work will be on show until October. Come along to the private view this Friday from 5 - 7pm.

Delighted that so many of my illustrations have been included in this sumptuous 
nearly 200 page full colour publication!
