Jane Pinkney at Nunnington Hall

Jane Pinkney's Mice is an exhibition currently showing at Nunnington Hall, near Helmsley.  It finishes on 4 November, so there is still time to go and remind yourself of Jane's delightful paintings.

Last year she had great success with selling exhibitions at Nunnington and in London, and the National Trust republished her book The Mice of Nibbling Village.  This year they have republished Mouse Mischief  - ideal for Christmas presents!

Jane used to live in Hutton Rudby and many of the works shown were painted during her years in the village.

There's an interview with Jane in The York Press (with the story of how Princess Diana bought one of her books) and you can see her work - though they have to be seen in the original to be truly appreciated - at the website for the London gallery, Chris Beetles
