My name is Ali Roberts. I have spent most of my professional career teaching in primary school, specialising in English, Drama and Art. I’ve had a wonderful time at the expense of my poor, long-suffering pupils! I have now turned my attention to another of my passions, scribbling! 

Using my trusty pencil or pen and ink with a dash of colour, I like to invent characters to inhabit everyday places and unsurprisingly, scenes from school. I like my pictures and the characters in them to provoke conversation: what are they talking about? Where have they come from? What might happen next? I live in Cambridge with my Historian husband and have two grown up children.

Dance with me!

Dance with me!
