I am an illustrator/children's author and model-maker, with a BSc, majoring in Zoology and Microbiology and a B.A, majoring in illustration. Most of my illustration work has been of natural history subjects. My husband is a stop-motion animator, director and writer and model-maker. Between us we have a number of skills. He has worked extensively in film and advertising and is an award winning animator.
I both wrote and illustrated a children's picture book, released in 2010 on endangered species
