Hearing about my new grandson, Danielle generously sent me one of her edible (not literally) Darcy Bears, complete with jewel blue duffle coat and an almost too good for small children presentation box, lined with her own unique printed paper.
To use her own words, "I am currently a designer and illustrator in the toy trade as well as a mum to 3 teenagers and a chaotic household. My life changed several years ago when I won a place on a Les Soeurs Anglaises' workshop where I met so many creative people; together with the inspirational Julie Arkell they gave me the confidence, support and motivation to go for it. Les Soeurs have a created a beautiful and magical venue."
Danielle returned to Les Soeurs Anglaises (for the third time this summer bringing her mother, the delightful Rosario) in order to share ideas and images once more and to work in an supportive and creative atmosphere whilst discovering new techniques and avenues of creativity she hadn't already been exposed to.
Good luck with your business plans, Danielle, you deserve it.......
