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.
I work alongside an experienced designer of 10 years and we offer a one-stop shop for children's book creation. We have worked on over 20 books, a mixture of picture and chapter books and counting:
