I grew up being encouraged to 'make it yourself', helping my Dad rescue things from skips to be turned into works of art and making my first illustrated book at the age of 5. I studied BA Illustration at Camberwell College of Art and later, MA Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. 
My first picture book was published in 2019 by Child's Play and I am currently working on a second book with them.

I also teach Illustration and Graphics at Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts and when at home, love a good DIY project. I live in London with my partner and son, our cat, and a large collection of spider-plants.
