Verified identity


I am a Welsh freelance illustrator and designer based in the rugged mountains beside the North Wales coast in the UK, living with my husband, children and rescue dogs.

I have a vivid imagination and eye for detail, which I channel into creating beautiful (and occasionally award-winning) pieces bursting to the rim with creativity. I am fascinated by the beauty, magic, and mythology of the natural landscape of Wales, which regularly inspires my art.

I am neurodivergent and presently undergoing a diagnosis for ADHD and Autism. I am also a member of the LGBTQ community. Representing both communities through my work and platforms is very important to me. When I'm not working, you can find me tending my indoor jungle, reading or wandering Wales.

I am incredibly passionate about creating unique and eye-catching illustrations for children's books. Creating new characters, embarking on adventures with old friends, exploring magical kingdoms and sparking the imagination of small and big humans are my raison d'etre. As an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, I have to date illustrated over 20 children's books.

Work experience

Head honcho

March, 2017 – Present (about 6 years)

Started off as just little old me working as a freelance children's book illustrator. I was working with mainly self-publishing authors and due to my skill set and experience able to offer a full package of book design and formatting alongside full illustrations for books. As my client list grew and grew my husband would work alongside me, an experienced designer of 10 years himself we make a formidable and skilled team. We now work full-time together and offer a one-stop shop for children's book creation!


September, 2022 – January, 2023 (4 months)

I worked on every step of this book from character design, storyboarding and all the illustrations including the cover.

Parkers Markers

September, 2022 – January, 2023 (4 months)

I created all the storyboard and illustrations, including the cover, for this imaginative picture book. For the character design, I based the main character on the author's niece and the dog on the author's dog.

Into Justins World

March, 2022 – September, 2022 (6 months)

All the characters were based on the author's family, including the pets. I designed all the characters, storyboarded the book and created all the illustrations including the cover. This picture book was a lot of fun to work on and is based on a true story and location. I based all the animals met in the story on the animals at that location, the Boise River. I also created a companion colouring book to accompany this, all the colouring pages from the original artwork and the cover. I included some of the author's son's drawings in the illustrations, and as our profile pictures for the bios, I also took them and created a repeat pattern for the end pages.

The windcatcher

January, 2022 – April, 2022 (3 months)

I designed the characters, storyboarded and created all the illustrations including the cover for this picture book. I really loved planning out all the little details of this book like the costumes, companion animals and even the colours of the different scents of winds. Such a charming book. The silver foiling on the cover really finishes it all off perfectly!

Ally the Great Confidence is My Superpower

I worked on this chapter book, the cover and all the internal illustrations. This story is a really empowering young reader chapter book and I was honoured to be part of it.

The Misadventures of MaryJane Lost in the Magical Forest

Even If

This picture book was an honour to work on. I designed these characters based on the author's family. I storyboarded the book and created all the illustrations including the cover. This book was in memory of the author's husband who suddenly passed away and holds a beautiful message.

Scarlet Lends a Helping Hoof

July, 2021 – December, 2021 (5 months)

I was lucky enough to work on this wonderful book with the young author and her Mum. I designed the characters, created the illustrations, storyboarded and the cover. I enjoyed working on the extra activity sheets that they created to go along with the book and all the silly little easter eggs hidden like the unicorn eating "Hay Hoops". The fun is always in the details!

Purrrfect Colouring

June, 2021 – November, 2021 (5 months)

I created the cover, the internal illustrations and the text boxes. This was one of my own projects and each character has a small little back story written up in the colouring book to give the colourer a tour of the magical cat kingdom.

We started on book one of this delightful picture book series in 2021 with Jake the Ape Makes A Lot of Mistakes, book 2 was launched in 2022, Freddy the Fox Will Not Share His Thoughts and we are just starting book 3 in the series this April.

Each book also has a companion activity book where I created illustrations based on the main picture books in the series.

Mysterious Cat
