Recently I had the pleasure of being introduced to Angela Chick a talented illustrator who is leaving the beautiful seaside city of Brighton to come and reside in Portsmouth. Portsmouth is my hometown and I guess its not as awesome as Brighton, we still have a long way to catch up with Brighton’s vibrant creative personality. We are getting there though and the more lovely creative people who move here the more we are able to increase our reputation as an artistic hub especially my neighbourhood Southsea which has a great reputation for such goings on.

Here is a little bit about Angela:
Angela has experience with print and illustration, and has produced works including limited edition prints, accessories, soft furnishing textiles, and illustrations for magazines – as well as writing and designing two books on introducing art in early education. Most recently, Angela has launched a line of children’s wear featuring her playful illustrations.
It is so exciting to see fellow female artists and makers doing what they love, making it work and being successful!
