I am a former fashion designer, passionate about illustration, reading and children's literacy. I’m a Senior Library Assistant with Lewisham Libraries’ Community Engagement Team and I love my job. In addition to comics and illustration workshops I am involved in many other activities for children and teens both in my day job and as a freelancer.

I’m a regular judge at Southwark Libraries’ graphic art competition which involves choosing winners and runners up for three different age categories, presenting the prizes and giving an illustration workshop at the award ceremonies in Southwark’s Culture Space. I also worked with Southwark on a manga/fashion cosplay event aimed at bringing more teens to the library.

I am a trained Arts Award Advisor, and have been involved in the ‘Explore’ Arts Award with Bromley and Bexley’s Chatterbooks reading groups, both in my day job and as a freelancer running illustration workshops.

I regularly judge the BBC’s 500 Words children’s story writing competition.

I’ve been attending a creative writing group for a year and I’m currently working on the text and illustrations for a children’s picture book. Read Less
