I love to draw children. I attempt to capture their quirky behavior and fidgety movement and harness it into characters for my books. I am particularly inspired by my own two daughters who surprise me every day with their individuality and unique understanding of their world.
I have previously published several picture books and early readers. These book were created digitally but in recent years I found myself wanting to return to the drawing board and develop myself as an artist. Just over two years ago I decided to do an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin and here I have rediscovered my love of painting and drawing with watercolour, crayon, pencil and ink and bringing my observation of life into my new picture book ideas.
