Jane Simmons is truly one of the most fascinating artists we have the pleasure of working with. Having spent a lifetime travelling the world on both land and sea Jane is rich with stories filled with the ark of animals befriended along the way. It is no surprise that her artwork is filled with the warmth, colour and vivacity of the Mediterranean sun, which make her books so universally and enduringly popular with both adult and child alike.
Showered with accolades from student days onwards we are delighted to join Jane in celebrating 15 years of her best-loved picture book character DAISY. Come on Daisy, and Daisy and the Egg were the first two books, published almost simultaneously, and they have never ceased to gain international acclaim. We are delighted to exhibit the original artwork from these books in the most comprehensive collection ever.
Artist event: To celebrate this auspicious event Jane will be at the gallery on Saturday 13 April from 2.30 – 4.30pm to celebrate 15 years of Daisy. Families and friends are most welcome, entrance is free and books will be available for signing.
