Growing up in the South West of England, I always preferred drawing in my room to being outside! At the age of 14 I won a competition whereby my drawing was proudly displayed on the side of a recycling truck and paraded through Southampton. I graduated from BA Hons Illustration at Plymouth University in 2014, and after a couple of years working in retail and for an architect, I knew that pursuing Children’s Book Illustration was my dream.
Throughout the course I believe I have grown so much – when I began I was very shy and didn’t let anyone see my work. The course at Cambridge School of Art has pushed me into discovering my potential. I love to draw animals and characters in the theme of real-life issues or non-fiction. I believe that, as an artist, confidence is key!
