You'll notice I've got quite a bit in common...

... with the characters I create

I love the magic of the everyday

And it brings me joy to create heartwarming, illustrated stories

Sometimes I get a helping hand

 with my sketches...

And here's a little bit about why I love what I do...

Stories and illustrations can leave you with a belief in magic that is so strong, that you will spend hours sitting in your wardrobe hoping that this will be the day you find Narnia. 

Those magical worlds can shape your future. I always loved the wintry scenes of Narnia and went on to spend 10 years living in snowy mountains. (I eventually gave up on the wardrobe and booked a flight, but I still have hope!)

Those illustrations and stories stay with you. 

The magic, the warm feelings, stay with you. 

If I could do one job, it would be to make someone feel so warm and cosy and loved before they sleep, that they dream their own world of magic.

My illustration

process...

Untitled_Artwork 4.jpeg

It starts with a sketch

- this is my favourite part!

After the sketch, I work on the illustration digitally. This is the slowest part, but it's where it really comes alive

The final illustration is a digital piece.

And then they're printed out to make their way to you.

In 2020 I taught myself to needlefelt so that I could bring one of my stories to life - Mr Bear's Christmas. Here's an interview with me about the highs, the lows and the behind the scenes...

I'm always inspired by...

Snow, 

Skiing,

Time with my loved ones,

Woodland wanders,

Starry skies,

Childhood books,

Underdog wins

Moments of kindness,

Fairy lights,

Lanterns and glows...

Uplifting lyrics...
