AN exhibition staged by Fenland illustrator, artist and writer Julie Parker has been so successful that it has been extended for a further month.
Julie, 29, who lives in Wisbech, had been due to close her first solo show at The Angles Theatre at the end of February, but it will now run until Good Friday, March 29.
Julie has been selling prints, original art work and some limited editions, and said this week: “I will be putting a special prints catalogue in the theatre so people can order prints of the art works on the walls.
“I have sold nine paintings and a handful of prints so far. It has been a very good exhibition for me. My next exhibition is in Cambridge at the Picture House, during April.”
Julie has just published two children’s E-books, after setting up her own publishing company called Bread Monkey Books. The books, called My Batty Book of Poems, and Dragon School: Billy and the Terrible Toasted Sandwiches are available on Amazon.
Julie added: “I hope this exhibition is to be to be the start of many exhibitions to come. I believe life is all about taking leaps of faith, being yourself and following your heart.”
The exhibition at The Angles Theatre is open during the theatre’s opening hours. For more information see Julie’s website, www.julieillustration.co.uk
