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. In 2008 I won the Early Years Award for the board book Tucking In.
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.
