Children’s book publishing has always been my passion; I have done design work at Advocate Art and the Bright Agency and I also worked as a novelty book designer for Caterpillar Books at Little Tiger Press. Afterwards I did design work on picturebooks at Andersen Press as well! Despite enjoying design work, my passion for illustration has always been present and this course has been an ambition of mine for years!

And I am so glad I applied! Since studying here I have gained a huge amount of confidence in my work, and seen it progress at an alarming rate! I love using pencil crayon and watercolour to create an energetic look and I enjoy writing humorous stories and drawing silly characters. I am so excited to get my teeth into more illustration and I’m looking forward to see what the future holds!
