Overview

I'm a professional illustrator who has had numerous children's books published, including the award-winning storybook 'Mr Rabbit', 'Frog Fight' written by Julia Donaldson and the 'Les Petites Fairytales' series.

Children's books are something that I am undeniably passionate about and committed to, with over 10 years experience of having books published in collaboration with other writers.

More recently I have started to work on my own self initiated books. This has led to the publishing of 'Out In The Wild' in 2016. A children's book inspired by unusual animal friendships which I wrote and illustrated.

I like creating illustrations, that appeal to both children and adults. As well as illustrating children's books, I exhibit at art galleries and sell prints and merchandise featuring my work online.
