I was born in north east London and still love living here, nestled in-between high-rise flats and electric pylons which stretch over Tottenham Marshes. I draw inspiration from both its urban and green spaces. I love colour and texture and growing up I was inspired by the work of illustrators such as John Burningham, Brian Wildsmith and Ezra Jack Keats.
I graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a First in BA Illustration, but it has been during the Masters in Children?s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art that my artwork has really found its voice. I research projects by drawing from observation and then use a combination of traditional printmaking and digital manipulation to achieve the final artwork.
I have also worked extensively in education and am now a part time lecturer in Illustration and Graphics at Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts
