Drawings of The Underground Restaurant

MsMarmitelover
My mum, Margaret Rodgers, is an artist and I asked her to do a few drawings at my home restaurant. Some of them will feature in my upcoming book.

  12. Fab drawings - remind me a lot of the embroidery work of Louise Gardiner. Has your Mum seen her designs? Think she might like the style... I worked for the card company that print her work as blank greeting cards, so if she might like some of these let me know! x
