Overview

I am a children Illustrator. I use Procreate, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. My quint, quirky and vibrant illustrations depict diversity and inclusivity.

I have worked with numerous publishers and self published authors on creating picture and chapter books for the range of topics from STEAM, modern families like single mother by choice, blended, same sex, self care for kids to fun visually handicapped mom Detective stories. Recently I worked with an A&E doctor in Boston,USA, in creating a non-fiction picture book of the original creator of surgical mask, Dr Wu Lien-teh. I understand the importance of datelines and communication.

Therefore, working with me means having someone with experience in producing PDF for KDP Amazon and IngramSpark.

I won Bronze for Japan Illustrator Association Award 2020 for an illustration titled ‘play date’ because I believe by playing without the aid of technology, children will develop intuition and imagination. See gallery
