St. George’s Shopping Centre, Preston is celebrating it’s 50th birthday and commissioned an illustration featuring well known landmarks of Preston including the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, the Town Hall and the famous Sir Tom Finney splash statue. The original illustration was drawn by yours truly and it has now been installed in the heart of the centre on the top floor of the shopping centre’s rotunda. And to mark the unveiling limited edition postcards featuring the drawings will be available to shoppers at the centre’s management office.

Ashleigh's 16th birthday card

Happy Birthday Ashleigh

I’ve been making special birthday cards for my kids since their first birthdays. My daughter Ashleigh turned 16 recently. She’s horse mad, so naturally this year’s theme had to be horses again! The horses at Larkrigg near Kendal get spoiled rotten when Ashleigh is around, so you’ll understand what’s going on in this year’s card.

I think Ashleigh spoils the horses at Larkrigg.

Office opening

I’d worked for Tracey Miller Family Law before, so I was delighted when they invited me back to the opening of their new office suite at Semmes House in Liverpool. I also did a little illustration of the new office.

Jazz Offline

When I’m not playing solo piano at weddings and parties I love to play jazz with my mates. We call ourselves Jazz Offline and here we are playing at a charity event house party in Darwen, Lancs. This house belongs to a friend of ours and it was a sheer joy to playing her beautiful grand piano.
