Profile

I have always loved the freedom of drawing, as a toddler I was known to use the walls when I'd run out of paper, much to my parents dismay! As an adult I am an illustrator who loves nothing more than sketching up and inventing lively characters with a real sense of joy and movement. I particularly like bringing other peoples visions, as well as my own ideas for children's books, to life on a page. Over the last ten years I have worked in schools and enjoyed children's books through the eyes of the kids in the classroom. I live in East London with my husband and my bubbly little girl, who inspires so many of my drawings and ideas. I often work from our studio shed, with the radio on and a packet of wotsits in a nostalgic attempt to recreate the comfort of the A-level Art experience! Usually with the heating turned up to 11. I love chunky pencils, rich colour and experimenting with paint and photoshop techniques for collage and that retro feel.
