I’m an illustrator based in London. I create books with ideas and humour to make people smile and encourage playful thinking. My ideas come from the things I care about, stories with themes of acceptance, belonging and celebrating difference have emerged in my work.

I am curious and intuitive in my process, everything starts with drawing and playing in my sketchbook with different materials. I get excited by mark making, colours and textures. I find constraints very useful, screenprinting and using a limited colour palette have helped develop my illustration.

I grew up in Northampton (where shoes and Alan Moore comes from), I studied Fine Art at Nottingham Trent and worked as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator before finding the wonderful MA course in Cambridge.
