I have been professionally designing and illustrating for children since 2007, after completing a BA (hons) in Illustration in 2006 from Camberwell College of Arts. I have worked mainly in design for this time, including as an in-house children’s designer at companies including Pearson Education, John Brown Media and Redan Publishing. Now I do children’s design work for many companies, including leading publishers such as Dorling Kindersley and Arcturus.
For the last few years I have started to do more illustration work, and honestly, I love it. I always wanted to be like Beatrix Potter, and now, very often I feel that I am.
I run a small creative design agency on the North Shropshire, Wales border with my husband, Noel. We have two children and two cats, a lovely old house and a dog called Shadow. I cycle, run and walk around the beautiful countryside that surrounds us, which combined with my love of animals, never fails to provide inspiration to my work, and even more reasons to look after the planet around me.Read Interview
