I was born in rural Essex and grew up in its flat fens, surrounded by the strong tradition of ‘cunning folk’ in my home town. As a result, my work is heavily inspired by the natural environment and the ancient folklore of the British Isles. Now based in Cornwall, I have been deeply obsessed with all things mysterious since I was a child. My worldview is animistic and my illustrations are inspired by what I call the Ďsoulsí of various objects and experiences. From a childhood of getting into trouble for scaring other children with ghost stories and believing I could talk to birds, Iíve developed into an adult who names trees, feels more connected to animals than people and lives with her head in the clouds every minute of the day.
I am currently available for commissions. More information is available on my website.
