I grew up in Warwickshire, England. I have loved art ever since I was a kid! After finishing school I went on to study a foundation in Art and Design at Warwickshire College, UK where I developed an interest in Graphic Design. I then went to Southampton Solent University and achieved a BA in the subject. After graduating I worked at London based magazines GQ and ARENA as a junior designer, however I eventually pursued a very different career as a Police Officer. 

In 2010 I began my MA at Cambridge School of Art, Cambridge, UK. 

Having completed my MA in 2014, the following year my debut Picture Book, Officer Panda: Fingerprint Detective was published by HarperCollins, US. It has since been shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Libraries Read It Again! award!

I have since had 3 more publications, The Boy and the Blue Moon by Sara O'Leary, published early last year by Macmillan which has received a Kirkus Starred review. One Wave at a Time by Holly Thompson with Albert Whitman & Company and finally, Pup 681 by Jean Reidy, published by Macmillan which has also received a Kirkus Starred Review!
