Three spreads from my picture book based on a Russian doll who gets too big for her boots and begins eating everything because of her bottomless greed. She grows and grows. However, at the end, a far greater brute snatches her up and gives her a taste of her own medicine!

I decided to create a narrative using Tarot cards. I wanted to base it on William Shakespeare. As great chapters in his life are shrouded in mystery, it was great fun to invent scenarios. Here are just four tarot cards from a whole deck, where the full course of the story unfolds. The general theme is based upon Shakespeare and his two lovers, 'the dark lady' and supposedly the 'early of Southampton', who both feature in his sonnets!

These are four double spreads from a picture book I created based on Pickle the Parrot and how she escapes captivity only to find that the real world can be a cruel place. Ultimately it complies with picture book conventions and she manages to find freedom by flying to her native homeland in Africa!

A little narrative I painted using watercolours about a newt. I created this after sitting besides my garden pond and watching the newts basking and playing in the water. I then began to create my own scenario about a day in the life of a newt.

About Me:
I am a Visual Communication undergrad, who specialises in narrative illustration. I have a passion for creating imaginary worlds and peopling them with my own quirky inventions, plucked from my imagination. I particularly revel in creating Children's Picture Books, and I believe that no adult is too old to play and be creative. I have a habit of collecting *************, from sea shells to buttons. I am greatly inspired by the natural world, and am planning on moving to a more rural location to enrich my life and creativity. My dream is to have the funds to set up my own studio in a cosy little cottage, where I can express myself till my hearts content! It gives me great pleasure creating work for others and if you're interested in what I have to offer, please feel free to contact me!
