Susan Jamieson

Susan came from the Midlands to Brighton Art College in the 70s, and couldn't believe her luck to be living by the sea. She set up a ceramics studio right down on the beach, where for 16 years, through hurricanes and heat weaves, she and her husband produced decorative pottery. In recent years, Susan has worked in a local pre-school and has become fascinated by child development, and how to spark that early creative flame. Gina Jamieson is her fourteen-year-old daughter.

Jane Hissey

Jane Hissey has written and illustrated over 20 books for children and a bafta award-winning television series, ‘Old Bear Stories'. She lives in Sussex with her illustrator husband, Ivan, and the youngest of their three children.
