I am from County Dublin, Ireland where I studied a BA in Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design. Although I enjoyed studying fine art I never felt that it was right for me. When I got accepted to the MA in Children’s Book Illustration I was thrilled to be able to go back to what I had missed so much during my degree: drawing. Since day one of the course I have never been more sure that illustrating children’s books is the path I want to follow in my professional life.

Most of my recent work is centred around animal characters, giving them humorous and childlike personalities. I experiment with many different materials including pencil, pen and ink, watercolour and digital. I have especially grown to love the process of screen printing over the course of the MA.
