I love writing and illustrating picture books – see Books section to find out more. My latest book is The Boy Who Loved Everyone, illustrated by Maisie Paradise Shearring.

I really enjoy inventing trails for museums too. I teach illustration to adults at Putney School of Art, as well as a group of under 5s once a week. I’m also a Visiting Lecturer on the MA Illustration programme at the University of Hertfordshire.

Rivers are my thing when I’m not working – I’m a conservation volunteer with the South East Rivers Trust, and I’ve been monitoring eels on the river Hogsmill with ZSL. I’m often to be found out on the river Thames in a coracle, skiff or punt, looking out for passing bats, cormorants and wagtails. I’m also learning to play Irish fiddle.
