Hello! I'm an award winning children's book illustrator, now based in Weston-super-Mare. I have worked as an illustrator since I graduated from Falmouth University in 2005. And I have been represented by The Plum Agency since 2007.
My publisher list includes Simon & Schuster, Nosy Crow, OUP, Little Tiger Press, and many more. I am also the illustrator of the new ‘Mazy the Movie Star’ picture book series written by Hollywood star Isla Fisher.
My solo author/illustrator book, ‘Tiny Crab is a Tidy Crab’ published in 2022, won the Portsmouth Picture Book Award 2023. And I won the Lancashire School Library Service ‘Brilliant book Award 2023’ for my young fiction book ‘Marv and the Mega Robot’ (written by Alex Falase-Koya). 
I have also been shortlisted for many more awards, including the Indie Book Awards 2023 and The Alligators Mouth Award 2023, and The Week Junior ‘Children’s illustrated book of the year’.
