I’m an award-winning picture book illustrator and writer: click the Books tab above to find out more about my stories.

I really enjoy inventing trails for museums too. I also teach illustration to adults at Putney School of Art and on the MA Illustration programme at the University of Hertfordshire.  The highlight of my week is my art class at a local nursery – and I love visiting schools to talk about books! You can see me talking about books and creative things generally on my YouTube channel.

Rivers and wildlife are my thing when I’m not working – I’m a conservation volunteer on my local river, which has inspired my graphic novel-in-progress, The Ghost Carp.  I’m also learning to play Irish fiddle. I live in London with my husband, grown-up children and cat.
