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

I’ll soon be doing puppet portraits again, my new website.

Hello Eloise - I've just written a blog about your eccentric grandma, and Joyce Grenfell's hat, and I came upon your blog when looking for pictures of Verily. (I've known A.A. for years, but she doesn't talk to me these days - something to do with a text I must have sent when drunk. I don't remember it, but that's not unusual. Oh well.)
