I’m an illustrator, author and artist based in the UK. I have an MA in children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art, gained after career detours in science and graphic design.
I have experience in writing and illustrating picture books, as well as editorial illustration, graphic design and branding for clients including Cambridge University Press.
My first children’s picture book, published by Beijing Poplar Culture Project in 2019, became a shortlisted finalist in the 3rd Little Hakka Picture Book Awards. I also created magazine covers to accompany this book.
My images begin as hand drawn in pencil or watercolour, and narrative illustrations are usually finished digitally. My love of the natural world means my images and stories are usually located in nature, containing imagination and humour as well as factual accuracy.
