These striking portraits are the work of Bristol-based illustrator Bett Norris. As well as these depictions of heavyweight writers and musicians, Bett also creates brilliant portraits of other such cultural icons as Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo and Edith Piaf, all in her distinctive illustrative style. Bett is great at portraying a real sense of someone's character, both through her portraiture and through her 'Treasures' pieces. Here, imagined artefacts and personal treasures from the subjects of her portraits are gathered together and presented in pieces you could really spend a very long time gazing at! I can't think of anything better than to have one of these Treaures prints hanging on my wall next to one of the Portraits. Hurry up pay-day!
