I am a childrens book writer and illustrator, although primarily I’m an illustrator.
I work with paint, gouache and watercolour and in limited colour pallets. I draw a lot of plants; my love of plants comes from my Gran. She is an Illustrator and her house is filled to the brim with plants. Her constant encouragement to draw has led to me drawing plants in everything I create.
I am one of six children so the inspiration of my work comes from my experiences with my siblings, I enjoyed capturing their humour and energy within my characters.
My ideas stem from conversations and games with my siblings, if something they’ve said has made me laugh I apply it to a character. The childrens book that I am currently working on is based on a game I play with my youngest brother.
