Biography

As a child I loved to draw, paint and make ‘stuff’, write stories that included space travel, witches and magic, and act out musical extravaganzas. I work predominately in watercolour and coloured pencil, and occasionally, in oil, collage and lino, then bring it all together digitally. I love figurative work, faces and the perfect gestural line that speaks volumes. When working sequentially, I'm always thinking about the 'moments' illustrated or animated and the moments not seen that regardless, tell a story. I received a BA Honours degree in Illustration and an MA in Children’s Illustration from the North Wales School of Art and Design. I work as a full time illustrator just outside of London and teach part time at university in illustration, animation and design.
