I am an illustrator and author who inhabits a world that lies somewhere between reality and daydreaming and create work inspired by folklore, fairy tales, with a hint of magic, and all intertwined with the autobiographical.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, and in 2016 I graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Masters in Children’s Illustration. There I learnt a great deal about illustration and the magical world of children’s books, and I am now working on several books, some for young children, and others for the child within us all.

I work from my home studio in Leicester, with a lovely view over bird filled trees, and am kept company by visiting birds and a cast of characters who keep me on track, offering their opinions and ideas (whether they are asked for or not). And when I fancy getting  inky I head to the wonderful Leicester Print Workshop.
