Megan Dowsett is a creative consultant working in museums, galleries and the arts, an illustrator who is finding her voice through personal and local projects, and a parent to two young beings who can't help but influence her creative journey.

Through the name Norris and the Flamingo, she shares the sense of adventure that runs through all of life, wherever we are on our journey. A sense of imagination, of possibility and discovery, for children and adults alike.

Work in Progress

photo 3Since the Autumn, I've been pootling away at a textured, textile playmat for Feets. I knew it wouldn't be ready by the time she arrived ... it wasn't ... but I still find the odd half hour to add a few more rags, and one day it will be finished!

In the meantime, I feel the most enormous joy and satisfaction when children take an interest in it. Kai, at 7 months, was running his hands all over it and Penny at 3 years treated it as a springboard for all sorts of imaginings. Hopefully by the time it's finished, there will still be some mileage in it for Feets!
