Artist Sam Toft is bringing her Wonderful World of Mustard creations to Norwich.

Toft's quirky, colourful artwork is based on the imaginary world of Ernest Hemmingway Mustard.

Ernest is a 'professional tuneless hummer and part-time hurricane predictor' in Brighton, and his story includes his wife Violet and Jack Russell Doris.

Oil pastels and coloured inks are Toft's main media, and she uses unconventional tools such as cutlery, toothbrushes and her fingers to create soulful and endearing pieces.

Toft's visit to Norwich is part of a gallery tour to launch her new collection, featuring pieces such as 'Nice View, That', and 'Spots 'n' Flakes'.

Originals, limited edition prints and sketches will be available, which Toft can sign.

The Wonderful World of Mustard will be at Norwich Frame Workshop and Gallery on Saturday November 4.
