I wanted to be an illustrator since I was a small girl. I now work out of a studio in seaside Brighton enjoying the sugary clatter and smells of the milkshake shop below...

I have illustrated numerous books for children including; 'Feathers for Peacock' for Wisdom Tales; 'Manger' for WMB Eerdmans; 'Little Leap Forward', Danish classic, 'The Inuk Quartet', ' We're Riding on a Caravan', 'Fireside Stories' and 'Dance Stories' for Barefoot Books and 'The Lion Bible for Children' for Lion Hudson. I also specialise in hand drawn maps and have recently written a book (for adults), 'Hand Drawn Maps - a guide for creatives'. Thames and Hudson 2017.

'Little Leap Forward' was included in the 'Diverse Voices List' in 2014; the best books for children published since 1950 to the present day celebrating cultural and ethnic diversity in the UK - compiled by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children's Books and supported by The Guardian newspaper.

Awards include:
The Nautilus Award for 'Little Leap Forward'.
Junior Library Guild awards for 'Little Leap Forward' and 'The Raiders'
New York's Bank Street College award for 'Brigid's Cloak'
