Overview

I am naturally drawn towards the fascinating world of children's book illustration where bold colours and scribbly lines inspire my work. Drawing inspiration from my own childhood, I find immense joy in imagining the world through children’s eyes where bears are getting ready for a tea party and the squirrels are dancing to Spring.Since graduating with an MA in Children’s book illustration in 2016 from the Cambridge school of Art, I have been living in Vancouver, Canada with my husband Avi, where I work from my studio as a Children’s book illustrator.When I am not working on picture books, I love to spend time with my family, cooking, hiking and travelling the world.
