I’m a children’s book author and illustrator- I work predominantly in watercolour, soft pastel and collage, and love to draw animals! My eighth book, Balancing Bernie, features lots of dogs, and will be published in November 2021 by Hodder Children’s Books.
Having spent much of my time at school doodling covertly on the last pages of my exercise books, I went on to complete 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.
