I completed my studies at Falmouth University amongst the Cornish beaches and tropical gardens, receiving a first class Hons in BA illustration.
I love to conjure up strange characters, animals and multiple eyed monsters and create fantastical worlds and places for them to inhabit and get lost in. I usually work traditionally in watercolour and dip pen and sometimes in 3D materials for puppet making.
My first commission was the Dark Lord series of teen books by Jamie Thompson, the first of which won the Roald Dahl Funny prize in 2012. I have since been among the 12 winners of the Lemniscaat illustration award with illustrations from my picture book ‘Little Kong’.
I am now hoping to get a few of my own picture book ideas off the ground and pursue a freelance career in children’s illustration.
