I am a freelance illustrator specialising in Children’s book illustration. I love to use ink and a dip pen and work primarily with watercolour. My subjects are usually children and animal characters but really I love to draw ANYTHING!
I was fortunate enough to be a Penguin Write Now Mentee in 2019 and I am constantly updating my portfolio. I completed my degree from Norwich Art School in 2000 specialising in Illustration, obtaining a BA(hons) in Graphic Design. From this I worked part time as a print technician and also freelance as an illustrator.
A few years later I began working in Further Education teaching; painting, drawing, life drawing and of course, illustration. During this time I studied to gain my PGCE in FE whilst working full time as an Art & Design Lecturer. I taught for 7+ years at FE level.
