Summer Exhibition at Nunnington Hall, North Yorkshire, YO62 5UY
I first visited Nunnington Hall as a child where I saw an exhibition featuring work by none other than Quentin Blake. His work has been a huge inspiration to me over the years and it is an absolute pleasure to be returning all these years later with my own work.
'Catherine Rayner and Company'

"Step into a world of adventure, fun and mischief and meet Arlo the Lion, Abigail the Giraffe, Olga da Polga the Guinea pig, Solomon the Crocodile and many more. These fun and colourful characters are the creation of award-winning author and illustrator Catherine Rayner. Growing up in West Yorkshire, her surroundings and life in the outdoors still inspire much of her work today. Through beautiful original drawings, paintings and prints come and meet some of Catherine’s favourite animal friends. Read about their adventures in the story books and get creative with activity sheets and step by step drawing guides to recreate your favourite characters. Step outdoors into nature to find more characters with our fun family trail in the garden - who knows what adventures they might get up to!"
