I am a freelance illustrator from Manchester, currently working towards a masters degree in children’s book illustration.┬áDuring my final year of studying for my BA in illustration at UCLan I wrote and illustrated my first children’s picture book called ‘Going Home’ which went on to be highly commended for the Pan Macmillan children’s book prize in 2017. Since then, I have been writing and illustrating more of my own books alongside other illustration work; focusing on animals and nature as my main inspiration. In 2018, my other two children’s picture books (‘A Natural Order’ and ‘Every Whale’) were also awarded highly commended in the Pan Macmillan competition.
