I'm a children's book author and illustrator from Edinburgh. I love making up stories, print-making and cutting and sticking. My favourite things to draw are eyebrows.
My books have been translated into 16 languages and my first author/illustrated book Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea won the 2018 UKLA 3-6 Book Award.
I have an MA in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art and a BA in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art. I used to work in theatre, but now spend my days in my Edinburgh studio with views of the hills.
One day I will manage to write a book about my very favourite animal - the duck.
I am represented by Paul Moreton at Bell Lomax Moreton
