A love of books and drawing began from a very early age. Fairytales and Aesops Fables were a standard before bedtime in our house. My first wish from the tooth fairy was for a sketchbook and a packet of oil pastels. My wish was granted and so began a life of drawing, creating and dreaming.

I pursued my lifelong passion of drawing and illustrating upon leaving school to study Fine Art. During my studies I explored the artistic mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture and poetry.

My love of books, illustration and learning have inspired my work as a community artist and teacher. Books and Libraries have always been places of refuge, wonder and insight throughout the years. The power of words and the magic of imagery encouraged me to publish my first children’s picture book “Dream” in 2016.  My passion for drawing and my love of storytelling continues to inspire my creative journey.
