Hi, I'm a freelance children's book illustrator working in both traditional and digital media. I enjoy illustrating children's books and have a keen interest in both child and animal subjects, with a particular passion for whimsical, fun or fairy-tale illustration. I have 6 years experience of children's book illustration, 24 published books. I am represented by the illustration agency "The Organisation".
