I have just found out that my books will be sold in a pop up shop on Weston High Street.

I submitted my books for consideration and I have been accepted for this event in Artspace, a creative hub for local creatives.

My books will be available as well as art prints, quirky household Items, stained glass, screen printed fabric, macrame (no, I don't know either), and photography.
