I grew up in Cambridge and consider myself so lucky to have enjoyed the unique learning experience that the MA in Children’s Book Illustration offers from my hometown. I earned my BA in Visual Studies a stone’s throw away at Norwich University of the Arts, graduating in 2010. After a short while living in London I moved back to Cambridge where I continued to make work whilst working for Cambridge University. During my lunch break I would often trawl around Heffers Children’s Books Department. I’m having great fun getting to know my animal characters and their worlds through drawing, play and conversation. I have eclectic taste in most things including art, illustration and story telling but I must admit that growing up, I was completely obsessed all things Jim Henson and Aardman Animations. I am delighted to have learnt a great deal so far and am excited to continue to develop as an illustrator and author.
