Ted Harrison is a Canadian artist. Originally from Co Durham (UK) he has lived and taught in England, New Zealand and Canada.

I think the children have done an excellent job here, emulating both the simplicity of his style and his vivid pallete. The work has been very sympathetically mounted with a narrow border. The designs have then been placed quite close together. It reminds me of a quilt. I’m not sure I’d have put it together in quite the same way but have a look at it full size and see what you think.

I don’t usually like multi-coloured borders but this one works well. Perhaps that is because the colours echo those used in the children’s work.
