I am a freelance illustrator, living in Liverpool.

I completed an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art in 2019 and I am currently working on books to be published in 2021 with Walker Books.

Ordinary life and wondering about people’s experiences, preoccupies me a lot and motivates my illustrations. For as long as I can remember, I have loved drawing people. Getting into a character’s head, from fiction or history, and seeing the world through their eyes is a springboard for my own stories to emerge.

Previously, I studied English Literature and Graphic Arts and have worked as a primary teacher, arts educator and theatre maker/designer. I also work with a collective, More Than Minutes, who capture conferences and events through large scale, live drawing. All of these experiences have brought me into contact with fascinating people and stories which feed into my illustration.
