If you go down to the woods today…..

Some time ago I was asked if I might contribute to an exhibition at Seven Stories in Newcastle. They have an exhibition of bears, and it was a great honour to be included in the catalogue of bear books presented at the show.

My paintings included in the show are from Something About a Bear which, last year, was shortlisted for the Greenaway award.

They are in good companywith Jon Klassen, Anthony Browne, Lucy Letherland, Petr Horacek, Dave Shelton, Jim Field, David Litchfield, Helen Cooper, David Melling, Rebecca Cobb, Sav Akyuz, Jane Hissey, Joel Stewart, Emily Gravett and Chris Riddell.

The show will tour, but if you can do go and visit Bears at Seven Stories.


About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    Are those bear-prints going across the floor in the first pic?

    Stuart Hill wrote some things in your blog, and I googled him – have you seen his bear pictures? Panda in a hand – Handy Panda……………and hares, and big black birds.
    To quote Dorothy………. “Lions and tigers and bears – oh my!”

      Hello Bernie. Thank you for the little ‘advert’. I’m just taking a short break from all the desperately near deadlines and found you here! And hello Jackie; I was once at Seven Stories, quite a while ago now, and loved it. I was shortlisted for a prize and was given a guided tour. Such a beautiful place. I came away completely uplifted…even though I didn’t get the prize!
