I am an artist and author / illustrator from Brighton, UK. With a background in fine art I have exhibited original work in many galleries from London to New York. More recently I have been focusing on creating engaging children’s books that have already been translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan.
My debut book Who's In the tree that shouldn't be? received a highly commended award at the Cambridgeshire Read it Again! Award. With this book, I have been involved in story events – reading, drawing and mask making with children at Waterstones, Kew Gardens and several independent book shops and nursery schools in London and Sussex.
Town and Country, published by Ivy Kids is a fun turnaround book for young explorers and the winner of Best Children's Book in the Junior Design Awards 2017.
