I’m delighted to be part of a group show that opens next week at Foyles Gallery, Charing Cross Road.

Organised by illustrator Emma Block, the exhibition celebrates the 200th anniversary of Grimm’s fairy tales. The show also features beautiful work from Lesley Barnes, Natsuki Otani, Yelena Bryksenkova, Emmeline Pidgen and Karolin Schnoor. Here is a sneak preview of some of the work I will be exhibiting, including The Golden Goose which is taken from Taschen’s The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm.

The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor
113-119 Charing Cross Road
London, WC2H 0EB

Thursday 29th November – Friday 7th December
Opening Times: Mon- Sat 9.30am – 5pm, Sun 11.30am – 6pm
* Please note that the Gallery may be closed when instore meetings and events are taking place.

The first ever collection of Grimm’s fairy tales, entitled Children’s and Household Tales, was published in December 1812; two centuries later it is still thrilling children and adults alike. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the tales seven of the illustration world’s brightest young stars will be interpreting these wonderfully dark stories in a very special Christmas exhibition at Foyles. With inspiration taken from both the classics such as Hansel and Gretel, as well as lesser-known tales like The Golden Bird, this exhibition is about interpreting and re-discovering a monumental cultural legacy. Prepare to be spellbound as you enter The Enchanted Forest.

The Enchanted Forest is grateful to IdeasTap for providing funding for this project through its Ideas Fund.
