I am an illustrator - printmaker with a love of the natural world and stories. I grew up in Yorkshire and went to Edinburgh to study English Literature and German, and then spent two years working as a self-taught artist after I graduated, running children’s art workshops in Germany, painting sculptures for arts trails, and creating my own work.

Being accepted onto the MA in Children’s Book Illustration allowed to me to combine the two things I love most – storytelling and image making – and gave me formal training in both. My stories come from imagination or real life, and my images are informed by my observational drawing and translated in painting or printmaking.
