My Pirates of Penzance Artwork in Australia

I’m always delighted to get requests from outside the US for my artwork.

I’ve had Gilbert & Sullivan companies in the UK request my G&S illustrations for their production posters, a woman in France purchased my ‘fox playing the cello’ notecards for her cello-playing daughter, and a music school in Switzerland used my sketch of a flutist for a concert program.

Last week I received an email from the Kelvin Grove Wind Orchestra in Brisbane, Australia – my first request from the southern hemisphere! They have a concert next month and will perform music to lift people’s spirits, so they’ve chosen some from the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta The Pirates of Penzance. They asked if they could project my artwork from the Bucks County Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s production on a screen while the orchestra plays.

It’s gratifying to know my art will be seen by audiences in Australia! My illustration is below – and if you want to enjoy the magnificent buoyancy that’s the hallmark of Gilbert & Sullivan music, listen to the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields play the Pirates overture here.

      • My brother still talks about going to one of you husband’s company performance which they enjoyed so much. They also met your husband (and maybe you?). And they loved your program cover, but I think I already told you that. My brother taught biology at Del Val, was a graduate from there (one of the first in the new science). He even had a one-man show of his local art at the college and one of their outstanding alums. At one point he was vice president of students until there was a change in presidents. He was also very active in ecology projects, supporting the Aububon Society as well as Blueberry Hill. He shows at the art gallery at Peddler’s village where the Breyer family shows their carolers (2nd floor loft or something like that). Iam so glad that Blaine Greenfield wrote about you in his newsletter. Laura

  1. Laura, I’m happy to know about your brother, that’s so nice! I have a friend Linda who is on a committee at the Audubon Society, she is a calligrapher and painter. I haven’t been up to Peddlers Village lately but I think I know the Upstairs Gallery that you mean, very nice paintings there. After walking around the Doylestown Arts Fest this past weekend, it’s plain there are a lot of talented artists in the area!
