THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR CREATIVE TALENT

I live by the sea in the UK, and work from my home studio where my ideas are scribbled, inked, painted and scanned into existence.

I studied illustration at Kingston University where I happened to find myself in the unusual situation of being picked up by a publisher at my degree show in 2003. My first self-penned picture book, "Fish Don't Play Ball", was published by Meadowside Children's Books in June 2004. My second, "Munch", followed in February 2005 and was long-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Over the past twelve years I've worked for a variety of clients including Scholastic, Wayland, MAGA, Oxford University Press, Ladybird, Egmont, Autumn Publishing, and Girlguiding.

I am currently living a dual life. By day, I'm merely a mild-mannered illustrator, by night I become the masked crime fighter and master cake-baker, Red Velvet. I hope to be joined soon in my crime fighting/cake baking adventures by a small, black and white, dog-shaped partner.*
