I am an illustrator, writer and printmaker who inhabits a world that lies somewhere between reality and daydreaming. My work is primarily concerned with illustrating snippets of daily lives, whether they be real or imagined, and my pieces can be set in the world I inhabit, more magical lands.

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 learn from 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 am creating artworks to adorn walls, bringing touches of the otherworldly to the everyday in people’s homes.

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.
