About Me

Hello and welcome to my website.

I have been working as freelance illustrator since 2010 from a studio in Cornwall, which I share with another illustrator.

I have worked in a variety of creative jobs before becoming a children’s illustrator including advertising, teaching and even painting and decorating!

(All good research for future book ideas!)

However the arrival of my three nieces re-awakened a passion for illustration and story telling and I wrote and illustrated a book for them. Since then I have been propelled into the world of children’s illustration and am enjoying all the opportunities that have opened up for me.

Projects I am currently working on include a fun series of children’s ‘Mix and Match’ books for the London publisher Caterpillar books. The first two books are now released (Jan 2012) and available in all major book stores.

I have also worked on various stationery projects for Phoenix Trading and Squiggle Stamps.

My work is colourful and vibrant and I love to create characters bursting with energy and personality. I love thinking about colours and my favourite has to be a really bright sherbet lemon, which makes me feel so happy every time I look at it.

When I am not in the studio illustrating I enjoy the outdoor life in Cornwall, swimming, kayaking and beach combing for treasures.
