How it all began
I have been passionate about art and writing from a young age and had the unique opportunity to grow up in a safari park where I worked as Ranger in ‘Pet’s Corner’, looking after llamas, monkeys, pot-bellied pigs and a lion cub!
Following my passion for illustration I went on to graduate from Leeds University and spent many years working as an illustrator and Artists Agent in children’s publishing. I then had a very successful career in the branding and design industry at managing director level.
And now? Well, I am completely focused on illustrating, painting and writing whilst living between the South Downs of England and the South West of Spain with my husband John who is always encouraging me to ‘Get on with it!’. When I’m not getting busy with my crayons, I love nothing more than playing my piano and sitting in the sunshine with a good book and sun hat.
