Hello, I’m Catherine Constance artist and writer of all the “Fun & Nonsense” that goes on here.
I grew up in South London and Paris in the days when little girls wore lacey white knee high socks and black patent buckle shoes and a pint of milk was left on your doorstep every morning. I made tents and drank Robinsons Barley Water in my English Nan’s back garden and drank bubbly water and ate escargots in some of the best restaurants in Paris with my French Grandmother.
Now you can find me in a small village outside Tunbridge Wells in my roof top studio “colouring in” as my partner calls it. My inspiration comes from my childhood, Big Ben to the Eiffel Tower and everything in-between and the wonderful little sticky people I used to teach in a teeny tiny rural school in South West France. Inspiration also comes from my travels and daily life and countryside walks with Phil…my gorgeous bonkers cockapoo…
Hop skip and jump with me into my magical world of Fun & Nonsense…xxx
I am currently working on several of my own children’s books. Watch this space for publication dates.
I was recently commissioned by Lizzie Allister to illustrate her short stories about Bumble the Bus that she self published.
I have spent the last 10 years teaching small people to paint and draw and have setup an Art Club in Ticehurst for the local children.
I have some up coming Adult classes. I’ll keep you posted on dates etc.
I will be doing online classes very soon.
