Hello! Thanks for popping by!
I am an author, illustrator and picture book maker based in Cardiff, Wales.
I have a passion for nature and exploring our place within it. Growing up on a smallholding established my love of wildlife and kindled a desire to create work that celebrates the connections we make by observing the natural world.
I have written and illustrated two picture books,
‘Hattie Peck’ and ‘Hattie Peck The Journey Home’.
The former was highly commended in the Macmillan Children’s Book Prize and shortlisted for the AOI Illustration Awards.
I have also illustrated multiple picture books for a variety of publishers as well as illustrating the ‘Adventure Mouse’ Word Sparks series of educational books with Oxford University Press.
Any spare time is spent pampering the chickens, long walks with my pooch, tending to the veg patch and occasionally dabbling with ceramics. I love to draw from life and am often armed with my trusty backpack of art goodies.
I’m supported, advised and protected by the Association of illustrators, the trade association for illustration.
