About







A little about me! I'm a freelance illustrator creating advertising, picture books, chapter books, comics, book covers, and editorial illustration from a cosy home-studio in the North West of England!

My work specialises in narrative illustration for both children and adults, strong use of character, and a bold colour palette; using a combination of digital and traditional media.
I draw on my love of history, popular culture (mostly tv shows, boardgames, podcasts and videogames!), learning new things, nature, and mythology to inspire my illustration work. You'll spot a lot of strong female characters, side profiles and coral/teal colour palettes in my portfolio!
run workshops and lectures for all ages on illustration, comics, the creative industries, and freelancing; which led to me being awarded IPSE's ‘National Freelancer of the Year’ in 2016.
Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss commissions, events, live illustration, or you just want to say hello!
