I am a UK based illustrator/writer currently studying MA Children’s Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University.
I have worked in the wildlife conservation sector since graduating with a BSc in Ecology in 2011. My love for the natural environment is something that underpins and drives my creative work, although I enjoy exploring a diversity of other subjects too. I firmly believe in the power of storytelling as a way of engaging and uniting people for a common cause.
I’m lucky to have lived in different places and travelled a bit. I’m inspired by so much of what I have seen of the world so far, but particular standouts were New Zealand, the Isles of Scilly, the Highlands of Scotland and a tiny Welsh island called Flat Holm.
Having only returned to my artistic education recently, I have a backlog of neglected creativity to see to. How this will emerge, whether through writing, drawing or a mystery medium, is yet to be seen!
I currently live in a funky little Passivhaus in the Cambridgeshire Fens with some tropical fish and a toy poodle puppy called Tiffin.
