Hi there, I graduated from Loughborough University in 1998 and I've been working as a freelance Illustrator and Author for 20 years. I live in North Yorkshire, England and I am still very passionate about creating colourful artwork for children's books, cards, jigsaws, posters, magazines and Advent Calendars for clients in the UK, Europe and the USA.

I have illustrated the Divine Chocolate Advent Calendar for 11 years and it's one of my favourite jobs to work on. I am also very proud of the three Pop-Up Atlas's which I illustrated for Templar Children's Publishing called 'My Pop-Up World Atlas', 'My Pop-Up City Atlas' and 'My Pop-Up Atlas of People'. These are non-fiction books aimed at 6 to 12 year olds.

I have taught Illustration and Visual Communication at Loughborough University School of the Arts for 18 years and I also visit schools, libraries and Literature Festivals all over the UK to deliver talks and workshops. My talks are based around how I became an Illustrator & Author and what inspired me when I was very young. I offer Character Design, Storyboarding, Book making and Pop-Up Building workshops/projects. I also create large pieces of artwork for schools and communities for both indoor and outdoor spaces / environments.

I love creating artwork which involves drawing and painting buildings, landscapes and characters....usually with bright, vibrant colours and a sense of fun and imagination!
