I have always loved to draw, paint and make things, which led to me studying Graphic Design at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. Since I graduated in 1996 I have worked as a graphic designer in London, more recently working from home as a freelance designer. My love of words, images and making stories led me to do a part-time masters degree in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art and I will be graduating in 2021. I am very excited to be longlisted for the Association of Illustrators World Illustration Awards 2020.
I live in London with my husband and two children, aged 11 and 14 who inspire my work. When I am not drawing and designing I love to read, knit , bake and cycle.
