I am currently completing my second year of the MA in Children’s Book Illustration.

I originally studied illustration at UWE Bristol, and worked as a freelance illustrator before joining the MA in Children’s Book Illustration to refresh my creative practice.

The course has encouraged me to step outside and really observe the world, recording the nuances of everyday life in my sketchbook. This has completely transformed the way I work, with observational drawing now forming a foundation on which to build stories and create images. I love to create characters, and explore the stories and worlds that they might exist in. I am excited to continue to develop my practice in the last year of my MA.
