I have a passion for children’s books which I write and illustrate, and a previous career in fashion design. Recent work includes the creation of characters and drawing tutorial videos for a Hackney Libraries social campaign. I’m open to illustration projects within picture books, children’s fiction/non-fiction, activity and educational. I’m also interested in writing for picture books, fiction and educational.
Storytelling is always central to my illustration, which is warm, funny, cute and contemporary. Expressive characters of multi ethnicities are very appealing and relatable to children, and perfect for co-editions.
I draw in ink with various brush pens then add colour and texture on Photoshop, and I’ve recently started sketching and inking on iPad with Procreate – watch this space! I have a library background and hope that my stories will encourage a love of reading in children.
I run popular comics and illustration workshops for schools, SEND settings and other organisations in London and beyond, including Imperial College London, Hackney Libraries, Museum of the Home, Hackney Ark and the Sharjah International Book Fair.
