The "What do artists do all day?" series. She's illustrating the final page of an Alfie book and talking about her life and work (plus you get to see the real Dogger grin)

Isn't she just lovely?

Oh that was such an interesting, gentle and absorbing way to spend half an hour.

Yes, she is lovely!

I still can't read "Then Bella did a Very Kind Thing" without tearing up.

So pleased I saw that ! What a happy, fulfilled woman.
And I'm very pleased to hear her daughter Clara's name is pronounced as it is in our family.
