Joan Longley

Herne Hill Market

Joan Longley is a botanical artist who uses mainly coloured pencils to create her designs of flowers, birds, and insects; in fact anything you may see in a garden. She attempts to draw as close to reality as she can possibly achieve. She uses coloured pencil as her main medium because she finds it gives her a good depth of colour, occasionally she also uses watercolour. She transfers her drawings to greeting cards, gift wrap, gift tags, cotton shopping bags, tee shirts, and calendars. This is an enjoyable and inexpensive way of sharing her work with other people. She also draws pet portraits using pastels or coloured pencils, using photographs provided by devoted pet owners.

Joan has been with CCFM at Herne Hill since it started in July 2012 when she was 76 years old, so she is possibly the oldest stall holder there!

By Laura

Oval Market



By Laura is a fairly new, but very exciting venture from Laura Francis, selling handmade scented candles. They are all made from natural soy wax and a blend of essential oils. Her scents range from an air freshening orange, vanilla & coriander blend named Reset, to a more modern and crisp Green Tea & Spearmint. And when it comes to styles, there are classic glass tumblers or some more bespoke offerings. Laura pops in and out of our Oval market and should be seen in Herne Hill soon too.
