The clock is ticking

Tonight I am packing my bags for London! Owen, Megan and my folks are going over for my exhibition tomorrow. Lots of people will be there all my Walker Books crowd and hopefully some friends too. Call by if you are near Bury Street it opens at six at the Illustration Cupboard. Or if you want to pop by on Saturday Max Eilenberg will be reading from Cinderella and I might draw a few mice!

Hi Niamh,
It was lovely to meet you this evening at the Illustration Gallery. All your CINDERELLA paintings are exquisite! As David said, it felt as if we were at the Palace Ball with the romance and richness of your work sweeping us off our feet.

Max's text is vibrant and refreshing and the end has a twist I've never heard before.

I'm thrilled to have met you as I have been a fan of your art since the Books Are Magic poster you painted for the Book Trust in 1999.
Good Luck with the new book!

Hi, Niamh!

Just like Sue, I'm a long-time fan and was so glad to get the chance to meet you last night! And yes, good luck with the new book! :-)

Best wishes,
Sarah McIntyre

Hi Sue and Sarah!
It was so lovely to meet you both too last Thursday. John did an amazing job and I was delighted with the way it all worked out.
Thank you for all your kind words.
Best of luck to both of you with your projects you both look really busy. x N

Hello! I know this blog post is from several years ago, but I was wondering if there was somewhere that I could purchase a print of this painting from your Cinderella book? I am expecting twin girls and am thinking of a Cinderella theme for their nursery and am very impressed by your work. Thank you!
