I published my first children's book 'Sally Sky Diver' with Orion Children's Books in 1991, after graduating from Cambridge School of Art. I then illustrated for Random House, Kingfisher Books, Hatchette and Dorling Kindersley before taking a career break.


I am about to graduate from the  MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, where I have enjoyed illustrating and story telling in a totally new way. I create all my work by hand using inks, crayons, mono–print, glue and scissors, using a variety of papers. All the work on this web site has been produced on the MA.


I live in the New Forest, Hampshire where the free roaming donkeys, ponies and cows pass my studio window, causing a nice distraction!
