I've illustrated several children's books, creating magical imagery for I Love You This Much! for Wonderbly Publishing, and sweet, tender illustrations for I Don't Like Birthday Parties for Trigger Publishing, among others.
Character is key when I am creating art for children's books and I try to illustrate the story while allowing the art to create a narrative too. I use bright colours and especially light and shade to create atmospheric scenes and evoke emotions. When viewers look at my art I want them to be transported to another place, and to wish they could be inside one of my paintings. My passions are nature, animals, children, food and travel.

I have now done three covers for Claire and thoroughly enjoyed each one. They are middle grade adventure stories with a magical nature them. Just wonderful to read and illustrate the covers for!

I wrote and illustrated a book titled Gertie is not ALL Dogs (in English), which is to be published by Clavis Publishing and released in Dutch next year, with the English version to follow.
This exceptional and beautiful poem was a joy to work on. It's about a little girl (or boy! See below) who can't seem to 'be' what others expect her to be. When it gets too much, she heads to the forest to speak to the trees. And there, even though the trees don't answer back in words, she finds her happy place. I immediately connected with the message of the poem and it was wonderful to illustrate.
Available with a boy main character or girl, as well as children with different skin colours and hair.
Illustrations for this wonderful uplifting and humorous take on when a mother becomes unwell, and how positive thinking and helping her feel good will help everyone to feel better.
A delightful imaginative rhyming story about a little girl who wonders where all the spiders in her home come from... and how to gently put them back outside! With a friendly spider hidden on every page for children to find!
Various sports with young children enjoying them, with a lively rhyming text to encourage interest in sports at a young age.
Working with Mindy Weiss, celebrity wedding planner, on two stories she has written about a flower girl for a wedding, and a ringbearer boy. This has been one of the most lovely jobs I've had to date. Such a pleasure to illustrate! Mindy is a joy to work with.
I'm just finishing illustrating a children's book for Trigger Publishing (imprint of UpsideDown Books). It's been wonderful working with the editor, Hannah, as we've collaborated on the composition and characters. It's a lovely story about a boy who doesn't like birthday parties and how he finds a happy solution to his problem.
