About me!

Hi there! I’m a British illustrator living in the Cotswolds and have been creating artwork for as long as I can remember. I love creating new worlds and characters, and hope to spread joy and happiness with my illustrations!

As a child, my favourite memories always involved reading. Whether it was reading my first picture books with my mom before bed (and imagining new stories for the characters!) or as an older child reading chapter books into the night, I remember always having a love for books! This is what made me pursue my career in illustration.

I’m a graduate of University of Gloucestershire, with a First Class BA Hons Illustration Degree. I’ve worked with amazing clients including Pan Macmillan, Penguin Australia, Andersen Press, Hachette Partworks and many more! I’m always on the hunt for more middle grade fiction to illustrate.

In my spare time I love drawing, adventures in nature, chocolate, stationery, the smell of cherries and finding new inspirational artists!
