Book Dash Durban

This week-end I had the amazing experience of taking part in Book Dash Durban. This brilliant initiative aims to have 100 picture books in the hands of every child in South Africa by the time they are 5!

How does Book Dash work? Twelve teams made up of three creatives (a writer, an illustrator and a designer) get together to produce 12 books in 12 hours! It’s intense and exciting and thoroughly exhausting!

Here’s a page from my teams book. Our writer was Andrea Abbbott and our designer was Fathima Kathrada……….

In Store Now!

I have had the great privilege to work with Mr Price Home again and this time its for grown-ups! Imagine someone saying ‘go off and draw whatever you like and we’ll turn it into home ware‘? Well, thats what they did and I loved every minute! With the only pointer being ‘summer’, my first thoughts were of a line that my husband and I used when we decided to make the move from the UK to Durban…..endless summer. And so my COLAB range with Mr Price Home was born.

The range is available in selected Mr Price Home stores and ONLINE and they’ll also deliver to your local store!
