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 also had 3 more publications, ‘The Boy and the Blue Moon’ by Sara O'Leary, published 2018 by Macmillan which has received a Kirkus Starred review. ‘One Wave at a Time’ by Holly Thompson published 2018 by Albert Whitman & Company, recently shortlisted for the Sakura Medal 2019. Finally, ‘Pup 681’ by Jean Reidy, published 2019 by Macmillan which has also received a Kirkus Starred Review!
