I am a children’s book illustrator living in Worthing with my boyfriend Zulf and cocker Spaniel and occasional crocodile Roo. I absolutely love what I do and especially love the beginning of projects when I can let my imagination go and create the characters and the worlds they live in.
I have been lucky enough to work in the word of children’s publishing for the last 7 years and have had a lot of fun meeting all the talented writers, designers and editors who I get to work with.
To create my artwork I often use a mixture of recycled graph papers, maps and other interesting things I have found or I create painted textures and experiment with mark making and how I can suggest form through different strokes and textures. I have used this collage style to create a couple of wildlife based non fiction books and some baby books. I would love to experiment with how I could translate this style to a narrative!
