“Full of friendly characters, and beautiful vintage-inspired collage illustrations, My New Room is another irresistible tale from a hugely talented new story teller.” Just For Families

Inspired by 1960s children’s stories and illustrations, old dominoes sets, daily musings from mini folk (who are extremely entertaining and bursting with a fresh and untainted view of the world) and my general love of doodling, colouring in and making up stories, I have been squirrelling away at new thoughts, adventures and projects.

I’m super excited that my second children’s book, My New Room (Pavilion), is soon to be published and is available to pre order now!

Moving into a new room is a real adventure.

In Edith’s new room, she’s found space for each of her favourite toys. Major Ted, the bad dream soother, is on the bed, Clarissa the Cow entertains everyone from the desk, and Sebastian Snake gets a bit shivery by the door. And that’s just some of the gang.

See how they settle in and make Edith feel really at home.

My first children’s book, Handstand, is now on the shelves in lots of good book shops! Published by Pavilion Books

“A super stylish counting book (of sorts). Beautiful texture and design.” Picture Books Blogger

“There’s a carefree confidence to this ingenious counting book… Edith’s voice is distinctive, curious and engaging, mirrored by the illustrators’  adventurous, unusual use of line, colour and pattern.” Book Trust

Handstands aren’t easy. Just ask Edith. 

From standing on her hands for one second on Monday, she eventually does seven in a row on Sunday. But in between, she’s put off by worms, bees and a cheeky bird.

Count along with Edith as she learns that practice makes perfect.

I am thrilled to bits that I have a number of other books in the pipeline too which will be published early next year and beyond.

Here is a sneak peek at some inspiration boards and doodles of my work in progress…

When Quadrille Books approached me a few years ago to work on a sewing book, I was very happy indeed and enjoyed the process immensely. Made At Home, my first book, was launched in the spring of 2010 and I often still get people contacting me to update me on what they have made from it, which is hugely humbling and very nice!

I wrote, illustrated and designed all the items in the book, and worked hand in hand with the fantastic team at Quadrille and two very good and extremely talented friends of mine, Ben Anders & Katie Sellers, to bring it all to life!

My first book, Made At Home (a guide to simple sewing) published by Quadrille.
