Experimenting with black and white work and the wordless picture book

Pop up Emporium

I was so proud to be involved in the Pop up shop venture .  A lovely group of Artists, designers and makers joined forces and opened our very own pop up shop in an otherwise empty shop unit.  We were open through November and December 2011 and it was an amazing experience.
