Railing Art

My Door Snakes and Punch and Judy Puppets have all been evicted from the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital and have found refuge at St Gregory’s Church on Pottergate in Norwich.

The Door Snakes are happy with their move to a real church
St Gregory’s Church is the home of Railing Art, a new community arts centre. It is run by Rosamunde Woods, who used to sell art at the top of St Giles Street – those of you who are from Norwich will remember the paintings hanging on the railing of St Giles Church on Saturdays.

Eloise O'Hare with Mr Punch and JudyRailing Art is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 10pm. Do visit if you can. If you can't, you can always have a look at

Mick Hardy music (2)

My dear web guru Robert just told me that GM Song by my mate Mick Hardy has been listened to exactly 149 times, so I thought I share another one of his songs with you…

This one is called The Burger Song / Shit for Brains. Enjoy!

The CD is still for sale – ten tracks for only six pounds. Please visit to contact me if you would like a copy.

"Tiny" the rowing fundraising champion! pastel drawings

I found some more photos of old work. Below is part of a 360 degrees oil pastel drawing on paper I’ve made of the Alexandra Tavern in Norwich.

I made the drawing for Tiny Little, the publican of the Alex, after he had crossed the Atlantic in a rowing boat to raise money for the Davonport Trust, a charity helping young people who suffer from depression.

Puppet family Portraits

When I came back from Australia to cold and grey Britain in 2002 I made lots of puppet portraits as Christmas presents for friends and family. This weekend I found some of the photos when clearing out the studio…

Verily Anderson is my eccentric author-granny. RIP 1915-2010
