We all love a good story, that glorious escape into another person's imagination and that wonderful release, at least for a while, from our own lives and concerns. Don't you find, too, it's the thrill of meeting new characters and watching their lives unfold amongst the pages that never fails to engage us?
As a professional children's book illustrator it's my job - and my joy - to see these worlds and characters in my head, and to make them a physical reality through my illustrations. I try to inject personality into my drawings; the lifting of an eyebrow, the curve of a lip, can say so much about a character, and it's such fun to do!
All my illustrations are entirely original and are created in my UK-based studio. I favour traditional methods, mainly using ink and watercolour wash.
