About Me





I have illustrated many books for children, Is This My Nose won the Booktrust Early Years award and The Big Night Night Book which I also wrote was shortlisted for this same award.

I have worked with Bloomsbury, Macmillan, Random House, and lots more.

I grew up in Bristol, Bath, Salisbury, and London and now live and work in Lewes near Brighton with my husband David and sons Jack and Albert.

Reading books with my little ones is wonderful, and I know they will be a constant source of inspiration for my work!
