Exhibitions and Festivals etc.

This year I will be doing fewer events. I have old animals and want to stay home and spend last days with them, and also I find that all the travelling fragments my work so much. I want to stay home and paint and sculpt and walk. So, when I am out and about do come and see me. These are the events I have booked in so far.

28th November, Solva Woollen Mill Christmas Fair

I will be at the Woollen Mill in Middle Mill for their Christmas Fair, mostly knitting, talking nonsense and signing books for people. You can also order online from their online shop.


Alligator’s Mouth Bookshop, Richmond.

14th December 2-5.30

I will be painting for the afternoon, like a casual artist in residence. This is a very rare appearance for me in the London area. I will be talking, signing and probably knitting too.


February 6th National Libraries Day

I will be working in two libraries in the London area, painting, talking. Details to be confirmed.


Solva Woollen Mill 

Some time in April 2016


In April we are planning a very special event to celebrate the launch of the re-issue of The Seal Children in hardback by Otter-Barry Books. This will be a ticketed event, weather dependent, and, we hope, very magical. For more information watch this space…..


3rd-8th October 2016 Ty Nwydd: Words and Pictures, with Nicola Davies and Jackie Morris.

Rooted in Nature is a short course on writing and illustrating to inspire a new generation of Earth Stewardship. More than that though it is about how to communicate a love of and knowledge of the wild for the next generation. Not just for writers/artists, we welcome anyone who is interested in learning how better to communicate ideas. The course is residential and there will be odd readings in the evenings if people wish to join us. Nicola Davies has a wealth of experience in this and I will muddle my way through as usual with everyones help. So, come and join us. See the Ty Nwydd website for more info and how to book.



Signed books can be ordered any time from Solva Woollen Mill. Dedications can be added once form is sent, via email. They ship anywhere and there is no extra charge for signing.

  3. Peter Clark says:

    Hi Jackie,

    Do you have a list of works currently available as prints?


  4. Rebecca says:

    I’m organising a festival in Greenwich across May/June/July and wondered if you would be able to deliver a workshop? Could you please email me @ rebeccagediking@yahoo.com?


  5. Amanda Hanley says:

    Hi Jackie,

    Please could you tell me if you ever do any work shops if so when, where, the cost and what age range do you take ? We live in Burford Oxfordshire.
    Kind regards Amanda

    • Jackie says:

      I do all kinds of things to promote my books, Amanda, here and there and everywhere. But I don’t do specific workshops really. I am too busy writing and painting and reading. The best way to know when I am around the area is to keep an eye on this page.

  6. Jim Jebson says:

    Hi Jac
    Have you got your schedule for Cornwall in November please. We’re ther for some of November and it would be great to catch up with you.

  7. Rhian says:

    Hi Jackie, I am hoping to catch up with you at Dulverton? At last!

  8. Amy Brooks says:

    Hello Jackie,

    My children and I love your work and I have to read “The snow leopard” regularly to my son to get him off to sleep. Thank you for that, and my little girl has been introduced to dragons in a very beautiful way, unfortunately she wants me to paint an ice dragon on her wall now!

    I was hoping that you could tell me if you have any prints of Pegasus with the poem on for sale at all ?(from the Barefoot book of poems) It would be perfect for my little sister and is absolutely beautiful.

    Thank you

    Hello Jackie,
    Do you have any work currently being exhibited in Pembrokeshire ? I will home in Pembs next month and would like to see more of your work; last time we found a hare portrait in Milford Haven Docks. By the way, you have many fans here in Brittany.

  10. Hi Jackie
    I’m organising a literary festival in Carlisle , Borderlines in September(6 and 7). Will your new book be out by then? We would love to have you at the festival even without a new book, as all your books are fabulous! I have 2 indie bookshops in Cumbria- Bookends Carlisle and Keswick. I can send you further info on the festival by email if you would like to know more. Look forward to hearing from you, Regards, Gwenda

    • Jackie says:

      Would have loved to have come but I have to tie up my travel with lots of events and won’t be up that way then. Can I let you know when I am? I have worked with the Hedgehog bookshop in Penrith and LOVE the Lake District. Keep me in mind for next year as could build my travelling around you. Meanwhile my email address is jackie@jackiemorris.co.uk Email me!

    Dear Jackie,
    We have not met as yet but I am a Facebook friend who lives in Glasgow. I come to St.David’s twice a year ( since 1977). I am a cat-lover par excellence! When you come to Edinburgh this Aug. -is it to the Book Festival? I am a very regular attender there & to other parts of the Festival. Can I assist you in any way with your arrangements to be in Edinburgh? I really DO mean ” any way” – as I admire your work & your wonderful communications on FB very much. With best wishes, Helen Anthony.

    • Jackie says:

      Hi Helen, Yes it is the festival. I’m doing two events but apparently am not supposed to talk about them in public yet until they are in the program.I’ll email you. And thanks.

    Looking forward to coming to see you at Holkham Hall. I have written a review of East of the Sun, West of the Moon at http://nonaanon.blogspot.co.uk/

    Dear Jackie
    We are tremendous fans if your beautiful books! We bought a hardback copy of ‘Tell me a Dragon’ for my daughter’s first birthday from Oriel y Parcel while on a brief holiday to Pembrokeshire (from Hampshire) last week. I told the lady at the info desk how much we loved your work and she told me she had seen you just minutes earlier and would see if she could find you for us. Sadly, you had just left as we hoped you might sign your book for our baby for posterity! Might you consider signing a book plate for us to stick in? I know it is a big ask so quite understand if not as I expect you get hundreds of such requests…
    Also, we would love to bring our children to see the artwork in your exhibition – will you be exhibiting it anywhere in England any time soon?
    Thanks so much for your time and thank you for your exquisite books, which have grout much magic for us.
    Very best wishes

    • Jackie says:

      The artwork for Tell Me a Dragon is being exhibited in Hornsey Library at the moment and then moving to Putney. Not sure where after that.
      My books are all available, signed, from Solva Woollen Mill. They have the new bear book coming in very soon and do tend to get advanced copies of the books. You can even get books dedicated if you fill in their form.
      I am really struggling with work at the moment. Too much keeping me away from my drawing board.

  14. Ailsa Grant-Turton says:

    Thanks so much for replying so quickly! I shall get straight onto the Solva website and look up some Christmas presents for the children, as there are still a couple we don’t have. The bear book sounds lovely. We will also try to get to Putney, it would be lovely to see the exhibition.
    Sorry to hear you are not getting time enough for your creative work and I hope soon you will get some more peace to write and paint.
    Thanks again!

    • Jackie says:

      Mt Cat book is out too. I am Cat. And Solva have the jigsaws. And lovely woollen things. Settling to work, but off to find bears soon in Britain. Cornwall to Dumfries.

      • Ailsa Grant-Turton says:

        Good luck with the bear quest. We have ‘I am Cat’ already and adore it but I didn’t know about the jigsaws! Already have a basketful online at Solva but will look again now… Always love nice Woolen things too.
        Best wishes

    Hello Bears and what fun. I might cry at the pictures of you crying at the highland park

    Hello Jackie

    We love your books here at Little Rascals at Snape Maltings. and we are very excited to have the jigsaw puzzles coming in soon. When they do, we plan to make a special display of your work, so I will send you a picture of that when it’s complete.

    Please will you let me know if you are ever visiting again, and whether you would be interested in doing a reading, or an event?

    Many thanks and best wishes,

    Jane and Diane

    Hello Jackie,
    I am an aspiring illustrator currently in my foundation year in University of South Wales. I have been a huge fan of your work for many years now and I was wondering if it might be possible for me to meet you as part of my final major project. It would be so amazing for me to just chat with an illustrator such as yourself and get to know the ins and outs of working in the industry!

    Please will you let me know if you would be interested at all, if not though, no worries!
    Many thanks,
    Becky x

    • Jackie says:

      Really sorry Rebecca but I am very busy and when not out working need to be home working. I will be doing some events in Swansea and am often in Cover To Cover in Mumbles so best thing to do would be keep an eye on events page. Also I am tired and jaded and fed up with publishing so not the best person to talk to. You need someone who is enthusiastic.
