From a very early age my bedroom was a little den of creativity, constantly littered with paper, paints, pencils and craft things. It was very difficult to keep tidy, much to the annoyance of my mother! I went on to study Graphic Design at Stafford College for 3 years and then another 2 years, also in Graphic Design at Loughborough University. After leaving University I worked for an embroidery company in Leicestershire designing applique for children's and adults sweatshirts and then from the late 90's I starting working freelance in the Greeting Card industry.
I have had much success and my work has been published on a variety of products including Gift Bags, Boxes, Greeting Cards, Advent Calendars, Tableware, Napkins, etc and in 2011 I starting illustrating Children's picture books. I live in Cheltenham in the UK where I rent a small office to work from in a beautiful old regency building. I like to find unusual materials to work on to create different effects and looks. I adore my job and couldn't imagine doing anything else.
