I grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland, but moved to the U.S. at the age of 25 and now live in a beautiful college town in rural western Massachusetts.
I've been drawing and painting ever since I can remember and spent hours as a child writing and illustrating my own stories, but I took degrees in History and Art History before making art my career. I love painting people, animals and the natural world, using traditional materials like watercolor, gouache, and collage, as well as digital tools.
Childrens' books were my first love and feel like the most challenging, exciting, and creative part of the illustration world.
I've illustrated many books over the years. Previous clients include Random House, Sourcebooks, Artisan, and Storey Publishing.
