Prior to the MA I was a published illustrator of several picture books and early readers. I created my work purely digitally but I found myself wanting to return to the drawing board and develop myself as an artist. I have been rediscovering my love of painting and drawing with watercolour, crayon, pencil and ink and bringing my observation of life into my new picture book ideas.  

I love to draw children. I attempt  to capture their quirky behavior and fidgety movement and harness it into characters for my books. I am particularly inspired by my own two daughters who surprise me every day with their individuality and unique understanding of their world.
