Gemma Correll

An ordinary day, an ordinary trip to the postbox, an ordinary-looking brown paper envelope. But, inside that envelope is something special.

It's a piece by one of my favourite artists, the Norwich-based Gemma Correll, whose drawings of her diary entries I stumbled across about a year ago. I've always wanted to order a print from her, but have never been able to pick from all of her lovely designs!

But here, in paper and ink in front of me, is not just a print of her work, but a personalised original, dedicated to our little Matilda:

I'm a bit in shock. It's so beautiful, and such a thoughtful thoughtful present from my lovely brother, Jesper, and his lovely girlfriend, Gemma, who know how much I love this artist. I can't wait to hang it in the nursery... I'm just trying to decide which wall will do it justice!

How wonderful. Perfect for little Matilda's Nursey.

Hi Astrid!
Gemma told me that you'd received the drawing, glad you like it! I had a lot of fun drawing it :)
