I love making picture books – see Books section for some of my recent titles. I really enjoy inventing trails for museums too. I also teach illustration to adults at Putney School of Art, as well as a group of under 5s once a week.

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. See above for an extract from my comic diary on the slipperiness of eels! I’m also often to be found out on the river Thames in a coracle, skiff or punt, looking out for passing bats, cormorants and wagtails.
