My friend, and fellow writer / artist, Jenni Ivins recently launched her book Mind Drawing Children's Stories. I went along to the pre-launch...the launch you have during the day before the official launch that night.

Jenni has been focusing on her art these last few years and this book is a collection of her pieces from the mind drawing children's stories project.

Mind drawings, Jenni explains, began one day as quirky doodlings as she waited to be inspired.

 Since then she has made them her own. Telling stories in her markings. This book features children's stories, and even though none of her pictures have a title, I have discovered Mary Poppins, Anne of Green Gables, Alice in Wonderland and The Very Hungry Caterpillar just to name a few.

Jenni's work has been exhibited in numerous locations and galleries, and it was great to see a collection of her work now published in book format.

There is no right or wrong way to see a Mind Drawing - just the possibility of different things being seen and different stories being found - says Jenni.

Jenni is always inspired by her surroundings, by stories told and untold, and loves the fact that people can look at her drawings and see something different each time.

If you would like your own copy of her work, contact Jenni at

I'll leave you with a photo of the artist and myself.
