Guided by Birds and Stars: Jane Ray
From Friday 4th to 30th Sept 2020, we will be exhibiting work by British illustrator and author, Jane Ray.
Jane has illustrated over 60 children’s books and worked with some of the biggest named authors, such as Jeanette Winterson, Carol Ann Duffy and former children’s laureate, Michael Rosen. Visitors to the gallery on 4/5th September will have a chance to meet Jane – also a nominee for the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Awards.
We chose Jane for our inaugural exhibition as she was one of the first artists to work with us when we started out as an online gallery. We still have a signed copy of one of Jane’s books she gave us when our son Henry was born – that was almost 20 years ago – and we have followed her career ever since.
Our event will feature original works and limited edition prints from the books Jane has created as well as exhibits including her very first picture book created at the age of just five.
