I am a British artist and illustrator based in the UK. In 1999 I graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, London and am currently in my 2nd year of the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. I’ve always had a love of drawing.
I had a 10 year career in animation, directing music videos and commercials. I loved the control I had by using stop frame. I could put my mark on everything and work organically.
Prior to my MA I worked with Master Print-maker Kip Gresham for two years, learning about print processes and working with many interesting and celebrated artists.
I am excited to take my love of image making from my Fine Art experience and the narrative and engaging aspects of film into the world of books.
I like the idea of pushing the boundaries of what a book can be by looking at different formats and ways to engage the reader.
I am inspired by the empowering conversations books can have with the reader and the other-worldly places you can take your audience to.
