I grew up on a farm in the middle of the countryside in Co. Cork, Ireland.

I earned my Bachelor of Education (Hons) degree from Mary Immaculate College, Limerick in 2011. For the following four years I enjoyed working as a primary school teacher and reading lots of children’s books with the children in St. Joseph’s Primary School, Macroom, Co. Cork.

I decided to take a break from primary school teaching to pursue my life-long passion for drawing and children’s literature, and embarked upon the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art.

I love to use collage and play with colour and pattern when creating my artwork.  I can’t wait to see what new and exciting projects the future may bring.
