November 2016

Because Paul and Anna have been so busy this year with exhibitions and commissions, they regret that they are unable to produce a November show.


The Magic of the Illustrated Journal

Paul's acclaimed Illustrated Journal Workshops are available on request. If you have a venue or a group of people who would like to take the workshop, please contact Paul for more information. The workshops include a custom notebook and special drawing tools.
