I am a children’s book illustrator, living in Hove with my husband Matt. I am constantly ‘helped’ and critiqued by my two young daughters. As a kid I always loved to draw, making up characters and their worlds. I used to have a huge roll of paper under my bed that I constantly drew on which gradually got smaller and smaller, by which time I was big enough to go to college. I studied Illustration at UWE Bristol and then did an MA in Brighton.
I have illustrated a number of childrens picture books, for a variety of lovely publishers, all written by different, very talented writers! My books can be seen in the ‘books’ section (funny that!) with a few examples of inside spreads.
Picture books will always be my first love, but I am starting to explore other areas of illustration that excite and interest me – I’ll keep you posted..
