About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Childrens book illustrator
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I was born in London and grew up with a love of drawing the natural world and creating storybooks. I embarked on my artistic training at Chelsea School of Art and completed a BA at Coventry University, which led to an artistic career in fine art photography spanning ten years. During this time I continued to develop my observational drawing skills, which eventually led to a return to my first love of drawing and illustration, taking the form of picture books for children. I have also been developing an interest in limited edition etching and now exhibit at several galleries in the UK. I have recently graduated from Martin Salisbury’s MA in Children’s book Illustration course in Cambridge School of Art, which was a fantastic experience that helped me a great deal to develop my work and understand the art of story telling both visually and through the written word. In 2010 I was selected to provide cover designs for two successive catalogues for Egmont publishers. The most recent of which has just been released in April 2011. I and my partner Stephen have recently returned to London and I now have the joy of looking out over the stunning Blackheath every day as I work.
