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 self published authors creating picture books for topics like STEM for girls by portraying mums in their STEM career, single mother by choices by showcasing blended, same sex and single mother by choice families, self care for kids when there is hardly any picture book written on the topic and my most recent work, a chapter book on a self professed genius boy and his latest inventions and Covid-19 for kids.

My authors enjoyed their time with me that we ended up doing a series of books. Therefore, working with me means you know you are having someone who had experience producing PDF for KDP Amazon and IngramSpark. Plus, authors mostly like working with me ;)

I recently won Bronze for Japan Illustrator Association Award 2020 for an illustration titled ‘play date’ because I believe children should play together without technology, allowing intuition and imagination to capture their minds. See gallery
