I was lucky to inherit my family’s creative genes and apparently became an obsessive scribbler as soon as I was able to hold a pencil. Drawing was a way for me to express myself and, though I wasn’t aware of it at the time, had a soothing effect on my mind. Throughout my life, I’ve always found it a source of enjoyment and satisfaction.

My passion for drawing things in tight detail began to evolve. I practiced daily, honing my draughtsmanship, creating minute, intricate scenes. These ranged from observations of people going about their lives, to alien landscapes and spaceships laser- blasting someone or something out of the universe.

I’ve always been fascinated by the possibility of life occurring elsewhere in the universe; this provided the inspiration for my latest children’s graphic novels, WormholePidg-Aliens and Shadow Beings.

I recently graduated with a master’s degree in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art. Studying at Cambridge, I developed my visual language still further, authoring and illustrating stories that gave voice to my vivid imagination. I learned how to construct a narrative visually and how to make a story flow by marrying words with pictures.

As a visual storyteller, my work is both accessible and unique. It is a pleasure to create, and I hope others will find it a pleasure to read…
