I like to make people smile with my quirky but loveable characters the world over!

After my MA textiles training, I have actually spent most of my career writing and illustrating children's books! These are published worldwide in 14 different languages and often, I illustrate other peoples books too.

Amidst this, I try to fit in my drawing and painting work for galleries, various commissions, book events and festivals and in the last two years launched my textile label "Quietly Eccentric" so life is varied to say the least!

Dogs are recurring influence and I continue to work on various projects and commissions for rehoming charities.
