My first published illustrations were inspired by a job designing and making children's fancy dress costumes. The more fairies I drew, the grumpier they looked, and they became greeting cards: "Even fairies feel fat, Even fairies get spots", and so on.

In 2005 I illustrated One Lucky Duck and The Box, and in 2006, Aesop's Fables (Meadowside Children's Books).

I live in Gloucestershire where my two young children hover at my elbow/knee and delight in colouring in/dribbling on everything I draw.
