I’m a children’s book author and illustrator, currently working on my eighth picture book (my seventh was published in January by Hodder Children’s Books). I work predominantly in watercolour, soft pastel and collage, and love to draw animals!
Having spent much of my time at school doodling covertly on the last pages of my exercise books, I went off to do a degree in Graphic Design at Bath Spa University, specialising in illustration, followed by a Master’s degree in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. After graduating in 2007, I began to write and illustrate picture books alongside teaching art classes in a primary school, during which I invariably managed to get more paint on myself than the children did!
Now fully freelance, I create books and run children’s art classes from my studio (see Art Stars), ably assisted by my basset hound, William.
