Hello! I’m an Irish illustrator/author living in Bristol with my husband and our black and white cat Odysseus. I'm happiest when I'm at my desk drawing and writing and can sometimes be found in a coffee shop sketching passers-by. for my 'People of Bristol' series.

Selected clients include: Little Tiger Press/ Stripes Books, Bloomsbury, Aquila Magazine, Boots Opticians, Fáilte Ireland, The O’Brien Press, Otter Barry Books and The EPA.

Jasper and Scruff is a new book series I have written and illustrated for 5-8 year olds with Stripes Books. It will be released in the US with Tiger Tales in February 2020.  It was reviewed as one of The Guardian Books of the Month and picked as one of The Irish Independent's books of 2019.

“…newly independent readers will lap up the cat-and-dog tale of Jasper and ScruffAdorable illustrations, snappy dialogue and outrageous puns make it the cat’s pyjamas for bedtime reading, too.” Imogen Russell Williams
