meet Mandy herself.....

We are giddy with excitement with only days to go before our Sydney Christmas event. And even more delighted with the announcement that British illustrator Mandy Sutcliffe will be coming all the way from England to visit us at Magnolia Square!

Mandy is the beauty behind Belle and Boo, a captivatingly beautiful collection of illustrations centered around the carefree story-like lives of children, woodland creatures and other friendly folk. Each piece is reminiscent of times gone by, dotted with equal measures of quirk and naivety.

'Mandy’s deceptively simple and stylish images capture vividly those precious moments in time enjoyed by children. Whether it be feeding the birds and animals,hugging a tree or simply sharing a story with a friend, the experience conveyed is always pure, and often set in natural environments. '

Mandy will be visiting us on Saturday the 21st from 11am to sign prints and talk about her work. You will find her at Habitat Baby who stocks an adorable range of Belle and Boo prints. How lucky are we!!!
