Based in Lancashire, I am an illustrator and author predominantly working in pencil crayon and gouache. I love to create characters full of personality for children's picture books, and in March 2022, my first picture book was published, called 'Cheesed Off!', illustrated by me and written by Jake Hope. This was then longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2023, nominated for the Carnegie Medal for Illustration 2023 and longlisted for the World Illustration Awards 2022. In November 2023, my second picture book was published, 'Percy the Post Penguin', written and illustrated by me. 

I have lead World Book Day events, school events and library events involving draw-alongs and activities. I have also lead activities and events at Lancaster LitFest, and story time events for children as part of the books I have published.

You can contact me on and find me on instagram, twitter and Facebook.
