When Justine was three years old a salesperson brought a brochure into the school I was working in. I fell in love with this print for two reasons. One was that my mother had just bought Justine a pair of red baby janes shoes, just like the little girl in the painting has. Two is that there is a stack of books on the floor and an open book lying slightly outside the frame.
This picture has hung in my family room for decades and I can now see how this lovely watercolour was a foreshadow of what was to come with my book Not My Story To Tell. It’s just been published on Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
I have had an avalanche of positive feedback on the book. You can read some of the mail I’ve been receiving here.
