For my beautiful friend Jypsy Jude, life is a Bed Of Roses. Many years she's travelled the frontroads and backroads delighting all those who meet her with her generosity of spirit, wonderful personality and artistic talents.
She, with a few others started the Original Gypsy Fair some fifteen years ago and she still is sometimes seen there doing readings and enhancing people's lives.
Jypsy Jude has had a huge effect on the housetrucking community in this country and has probably done more than any other to keep the Gypsy style alive on the road. She has painted her 'Folk Art' on literally hundreds of housetrucks and housebuses throughout the land. Some are now off the road but many still have many years of life and times ahead of them and if you see them they'll make your heart sing.
I'm going to try and catalogue all her works of art and from time to time you'll see examples of her quirky humour and skills here to enjoy. These days you'll find Jude in her newest old Beddy, Bed Of Roses...
