As a child I loved making stuff, drawing and painting, riding my bike and generally messing about.
I became a full-time illustrator in the 1990s and have since illustrated over 40 books for children. I've won an Early Years Award for the board book Tucking In and been short-listed for other awards.
I recently took a break to complete a degree in Fine Art before returning to illustration with my first author-illustrated picture book, The Big Red Rock.
I continue making stuff, drawing and painting and have recently bought a bike.
Currently a member of Society of Authors and Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
