Design and Colour - The Art of Jane Ray
25 Feb onwards
Jane Ray is without parallel - her books span the world and the inspiration she draws for her artwork is inspired by as many countries and they sell in.
With a passion for light, colour and design Jane's books stand apart from others. With a diversity of influence and her initial training in design and ceramics she has become one of the great names of illustrative design.
This artist focus for Jane looks at the work of three books all of which explore the broad sweep of inspiration she has acquired from Italy, the Caribbean and the Middle East.
