About this artist
Iâ€™ve been illustrating books for children for more than 15 years, and my work is published in the UK, Italy, France, Korea, USA, to name but a few.
I have published with Random House, Bloomsbury, Egmont, Scholastic, Orion and many others.
I attended 2 Art schools, Nene College in Northampton, where I studied Graphic Design, and Cambridge school of Art where I specialized in Illustration.
I use acrylic and a mixture of papers and pencil to create my art. Many things influence my work, including pattern, 1950â€™s and 60â€™s childrenâ€™s books, vintage finds and of course my own children.
When not illustrating, I enjoy cooking, going to the cinema, rummaging around flea markets, walking my dog on the beach and chocolate.
I live in the North East of England, Newcastle, with my husband, two children , two cats and our new edition to the family, Queenie the Fox Terrier.
