Illustration and Other Adventures

As a little girl, I always wanted to write and illustrate books, but this ambition fell by the wayside as I grew up and tried to follow a 'sensible' career path. I studied Biology and graduated in 2005 but I was miserable, and that same year I decided to enrol at art college. It was the best decision I ever made.

I started self-publishing in 2008 with a recipe book, Bake Me A (Vegan) Cake. It was wonderful to create an entire book from scratch, from the first sketches (and poorly baked cakes) to the paintings to holding the finished article in my hands. I was hooked, and have been making books and zines - both self-published and not - ever since.

The Green Bean, my ongoing bimonthly zine has been running regularly (ish) since 2010. I'd always wanted to create my own magazine and there seemed no reason not to try. Since then the Green Bean's readership has steadily grown, and there are subscribers all over the world.

2013 has been my most exciting year so far. First, the publication of my long-laboured-over graphic memoir about eating disorders, abuse and recovery, Lighter Than My Shadow. Secondly, the publication of my first book for children, The Crystal Mirror, in collaboration with writer Tim Malnick.
