As an illustrator, writer and creator of comics, I use a variety of traditional and digital media techniques to tell my own and others’ stories. Born in Liverpool, England, I'm an immigrant three times over and now call the beautiful Kāpiti Coast of New Zealand home.

If you've ever wondering what a day in an illustrator's life might look like, I wrote (and illustrated) a short piece about it for The Sapling!  

In 2018, I illustrated my first children's book - Eirlys Hunter's The Mapmakers Race.  Together, we were awarded a Storylines Notable Book Award and the book was shortlisted for the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults in 2019!
