I am an illustrator, writer and printmaker whose work inhabits a world that lies somewhere between reality and daydreaming.

I have always had a passion for illustration and storytelling, and in 2016 I graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Masters in Children’s Illustration. There, I was lucky enough to be taught by some of the greatest contemporary illustrators, and I learnt a huge amount about illustration – from creating picture books to illustrating for older children. I am now working on several projects and 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 trees that are inhabited by birds of all sizes and breeds and the occasional squirrel too. And when I fancy getting  inky I head to Leicester Print Workshop where I was Artist in Residence from April to July 2018.
