I am an illustrator based in London, with a particular interest in children's picture book and editorial illustration.
What I like to create
I am drawn to real life stories. The objects and memories that we collect and pass down to our relatives and friends. Both the mundane and the extraordinary. I enjoy writing and illustrating my childhood memories and those of my family.
I love to draw from life, using a mix of traditional mediums like gouache, ink, pencils and pens. I like to focus on detail but I also like scribbles and mess. I love to use complimentary colours – I'm not sure if there is anything more perfect than bright orange and olive green, or a deep teal and a bright pink.
I will never tire from drawing objects, big landscapes, tall city buildings, tiny cottages, children playing, people in their houses, and any type of animal or wild thing.
I have illustrated and designed two creative activities for Tate Kids, a breakfast memory game and draw a fairytale.
From 2008-2015 I was Co-Director of Moogie Wonderland ltd, a not-for-profit arts collective. Moogie Wonderland curates vibrant art and music events in public situations with the aim of bringing art to local communities. Highlights include creating 150 fake fur bear hats, putting on a fish disco on a light vessel ship and making sugar cube houses with local Primary school children.
