About

Children's books, personalized prints, family trees, pet and people portraits combined with some buffoonery and twitteridge.

Hi! Jules here - I'm going to tell you a bit about myself.

I write, illustrate and Indie Publish my own stories, giving me the freedom to produce quirky books that engage children with reading from an early age. I like my stories to make the reader giggle and want to read the books again and again. My customers think I produce some magical pictures and give me lovely reviews.

I supply bookstores like Waterstones in the UK as well as many independent book shops.

Most of my work is remembering the story ideas that come to me at terrifically inconvenient moments! I write books for children, from age 3 up. So far I have 6 books published and am working on the 7th.

I decided to 'go it alone' and Indie publish my own books as it gives me much more freedom to write, illustrate and design exactly what I want; my customers tell me they really love what I produce and that gives me the boost to keep going.

My journey into Indie Publishing has been an exciting experience; gone are the days of 'just being an illustrator' like I thought I would be when I was at Uni! Thankfully, My track record with selling has been terrific, more than I expected and I have repeatedly been selling out and having to order more books.

I started my Etsy shop so that I could also sell my books and other illustrations further afield. I spend much of my time scribbling in my sketchbook when silly ideas come to me or when I earwig on a conversation that starts something in my head.

Inspiration strikes me at the weirdest of times and is often from just one thought about something that I find funny. From that a story grows!

I have two distinct but connected Etsy shops. I like to think my other one, Woodland Fairy Knits is like my illustrations but in 3D. Here's the link:

Thanks for looking,
Jules x

Welcome to my Etsy shop and thanks for looking!
I write & illustrate children's books and publish them myself, giving me the freedom to write the quirky stories that pop into my head while I'm making cheese on toast. My books are on sale in the UK's biggest bookstore, Waterstones, as well as independent shops and Amazon.

All questions are answered as sensibly as possible, although this may vary on a day to day basis, depending on how much cheese on toast I've consumed.

Warning: This illustrator works with fun.
