Working with a broad range of techniques keeps my work fresh and enables me to respond to each project appropriately. I use whatever comes to hand,  monoprint, watercolour, gouache and collage, layering it up digitally.

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

I live rural North Yorkshire, in a windswept cottage tucked down a narrow, bumpy track.

For picture books I am represented by
