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. I giggle to myself most days in the studio… love this world of making books for and about mini folk!
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.
