hello!

I am a modern designer, maker, author & illustrator. I’m a committed lover of cabbage and marshmallows (although not necessarily at the same time) and have a penchant for collecting piles of old lined paper to doodle on.

My children’s books include Handstand (Pavilion), My New Room (Pavilion). The New Baby (Pavilion) and Dress Like Mummy (Boxer Books). With more on the way!

My second ‘sewing/making and doing’ book has just been published too! Makes For Mini Folk (Pavilion 2018).

I am very excited to be working on a project in association with @beanstalkreads to make my new mini collection of textile items (to complement my books), and snazzy new webshop where 10% of all sales will go directly to the fab @beanstalkreads to help little ones learn to read.

 

Things I also particularly like include drawing horses, metal shoe lasts, pink chairs, crossing out, flamingoes, swimming dolls from the 1920s, a well trimmed fringe, green coats, the Queen (particularly her 1960s outfits), funny postcards, elephant slides, cloud formations, Hitchcock on a Wednesday afternoon, & eggs for breakfast.

Welcome to my website. Please browse the links at the top of the page for a bit more about my journey so far, a snapshot of my work, past projects & new things in progress.

signings-and-workshops

 

12th & 13th May, I will be having LOTS of fun at the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival. Workshop and book signings galore… times TBC so stay tuned.

30th June, I’ll be running an illustration workshop for grown ups at the fab Hope & Elvis in Nottingham. Delectable Doodles & Quirky Collage will take you on a journey evolving your own drawings through line and paper cutting, teaching you the tools you need to explore alternative ways of image making. I’d love to see you there! for more info click here.
