I absolutely love books; reading, writing and illustrating them!

I am inspired by authors and illustrators such as Margaret Atwood, Dr Seuss, Bill Peet, Hergé (Georges Remi) and Arthur Rackham, and particularly enjoy children’s picture books and novels that are a little different.

I also like to think a little differently 😉

I am currently working on an adult novel and two children’s picture book series, and am loving the challenge of moving between different genres, words and pictures.

Monkey’s Great Adventures, my first children’s book series, combines my love of travel and adventure with my appreciation and respect for the traditional hand-made crafts, combining real life scenes with knitted characters in an imaginative series that plays with the idea of children believing their favourite toys are real.
