Hello! I’m an illustrator and children’s book author.

I have an MA in children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art, a BA in illustration from Cardiff School of Art & Design and did my art foundation at Falmouth University. Since graduating in 2015 I have worked on a range of projects, from writing and illustrating picture books to designing soft toys and greetings cards; as well as a stint painting props, event styling, and running crafty workshops for kids.

When I’m not making a mess in my East London studio, I like to sketch from life and eavesdrop at the zoo. I also work as a cake artist: hand-shaping and painting bespoke cake POPs.

I am represented by Alice Williams at David Higham Associates. My first picture book, Just Like Daddy, will be published by Pavilion Children’s Books in May 2017; followed by two more titles in 2018. Other clients include: Egmont, House of Illustration, Jellycat, and Oxford University Press.
