My love of illustration started a long time ago at Cambridge School of Art. In 2015 I returned and completed the highly regarded MA in Children's Book Illustration.

I live in rural North Yorkshire, UK  in a little windswept cottage tucked down a narrow, bumpy track, high on a hill with my partner.


I walk every day with my rescued Romanian street dog, Bertie, loving the wildness of the Yorkshire landscape. I will often sketch and find  textures for my illustrations on these walks,  returning home with a bag full of treasures.
