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 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 8 books published and am working on the 9t, 10th and 11th.

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,

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I do both custom and personlised orders. Just send me a convo if you don't see what you are looking for. Unfortunately I don't frame my illustrations as they don't survive the post - but they do come in an 'Antique Textured' card mount from my favourite framers in Cornwall.

Yes, I do wholesale - just send me a convo to enquire.
