I studied Graphic Design at Bath College of Higher Education, before becoming a primary school teacher and teaching infants for several years. I then had my own two boys and began writing and illustrating children's books. My pictures are all collages made from different sorts of hand made and painted papers, and a few other oddments, built up in layers to create depth and texture. I also run occasional workshops for children in schools and libraries. In March 2011, I was highly commended by the Booktrust judges in their 'Best New Illustrators' Award.
In July 2016, I set up The Windsock Press, publishing my own ranges of greetings cards - exciting!
