As many of you will know, Alessi Laurent-Marke, able captain of the widely beloved Alessi’s Ark, does much more than writing scintillating, magical folk songs. She’s the worthy purveyor of a delectable variety of handmade and lovely things via her blog, and she’s rather keen on having a scribble with the ol’ felt tips.
For the first time, Alessi’s art work will be exhibited in one place (namely Riverside Studios, Hammersmith) from Tuesday 4th August to Sunday 6th September. Each of the pieces in the Handmade exhibition relates in some way to a song, and many are companions to tracks from Alessi’s sumptuous album, Notes from the Treehouse.
