A Tribute to Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone

My latest art is a tribute to Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. These incredibly talented sisters’ (twins, in fact) beautiful illustrations made up most of my earliest childhood memories. I can remember reading Dean’s Gift Book of Nursery Rhymes and feeling as though I was being slowly drawn into each and every illustration. I have never found another artist that has affected me in the same way. So, here’s to you, Anne and Janet!

  1. This is gorgeous Kim, a wonderful tribute. It brings back the Dean’s Nursery Rhyme book, there was something about those background colours; eerie and fantastical.
