Biography

Since leaving Brighton university in 1998 with an upper 2nd BA (Hons) in illustration, I have been working as a freelance illustrator. I have designed a number of greeting cards and have also worked on a variety of children's book projects with publishers such as Brilliant books, Oxford University Press and Macmillan.I have also worked on posters, book jackets, calendars and magazine articles. More recently I have been working for a number of children's book publishers in America. I have a painterly style, working in acrylic paint. T he use of colour is a very important aspect of my work. I enjoy all sorts of projects, but particularly those that allow me to be imaginative, decorative and colourful. I am married and my husband is also an illustrator. We live in Essex and work from home. The Lion titles I have illustrated are, Lullaby Rhymes - sweetest dreams, starry skies, bedtime blessings,heavenly angels ( also included in 'lion children's favourites') My Little Bible Box
