I grew up in Sussex, near where AA Milne penned Winnie-the-Pooh. I could see how Milne wove the landscape into his stories, having a passion for nature myself, this had a profound impact on me. My favourite thing then, as now, was writing my own stories and drawing the images to accompany them.  

I love the scope of subjects that children's book cover, from light-hearted, to tackling the challenges we all face. I sometimes favour difficult subject matter, using mixed media, softened by subtle colours and elements inspired by nature.  

I've loved illustrating the texts of others, as well as my own material. This has further developed my own creative 'voice' and I feel excited by the prospect of building on this.  

As a mother, I have spent hours sharing books with my children. These are special memories, and I would love to be part of this fantastically important industry.
