I've been a freelance illustrator since 2004, working mainly on greetings cards and children's books. I have worked on some lovely projects for Oxford University Press, Caterpillar Books, Campbell Books and Ginger Fox. My books have been published in different languages around the world including French, Spanish, Korean and Gaelic. I also work regularly with publisher James Ellis, designing card ranges, advent calendars, invitations and prints.
My illustrations are lovingly created with acrylic paints, coloured pencils and collage. Lots of things inspire me including old books and toys, bits of fabric, brand new tubes of paint, patterned tea cups and stickers.
When I'm not painting or daydreaming in my Edinburgh studio, some of my favourite things to do are cycling, snowboarding, sewing, seeking out charity shop treasures and eating cakes.
