Hidden Treasures

Whilst clearing out my room today in preparation for packing up and moving I found so much old work, including this series that were done during my art foundation year. They were a response to a trip to Paris, where I found a picture of the two children. I made up a narrative of an imaginary trip to England recorded on postcards written in French by the nanny looking after them and made illustrations which appeared inside a wicker picnic basket, like an oversized book.

The Journey

The Cottage

The Adventures

Unfortunately the illustrations are bigger than A4 so they are cropped slightly through scanning.
