Well I have not posted anything for a while but work carries on. I spent ages painting the above picture, which is actually huge in size and took ages. I also joined a screen printing studio. At some point in the summer I am hoping to exhibit some of the prints, do get in touch if you know of a good London venue. I joined Instagram and you can see some of the prints and stuff I've been up to on there (@anniestraus)
Also I added a few examples of my scribing (also known as graphic facilitation) onto my website- I've previously kept that type of work seperate from my illustration but recently figured it's all coming out of the same hand so why be coy about it. More soon!

I did a load of editorial illustrations for the Mail Online about an anonymous couple of first time buyers trying to navigate the minefield of dodgy estate agents, overpriced and dramatically damp flats, and tricks of the trade in their pursuit for a home. Read some of the articles here, here, here and with a bit of a happy ending - here.

Celebrating light in darkness and the triumph of good, this festival of light is one of the most magical, colourful and welcoming. The above is my first and second poster drafts for the celebrations at the community gardens in East Ham, a beautiful and inclusive place full of hard working chutney making, pumpkin baking staff and volunteers, a perfect venue to celebrate Diwali.

One of my absolute favourite projects so far this year was being commissioned by The Spark to create an instillation depicting their specially commissioned poem celebrating the 75th anniversary of Southfields Library (now re-opened and re-vamped and re-named 'Pork Pie Library and Community Centre' ) It was great to approach them with a design and be given the freedom to go ahead and create it from scratch. It's a permanent piece so you can sit back down and have one more cup of tea before rushing over there in hoards.

A few months ago I exhibited at Lauderdale House in London with Arachne Press. The paintings I made for the show were all based on my recent visit to Rome. The characters in the fountains, the ruins, the beasties. Above are a few of the paintings. Most are available to purchase so if you would like a piece of original art then get in touch.
