Artist Bio

I was born in Edinburgh in Scotland and raised in the south of England where I now currently live in Surrey with my husband and daughter. I began my illustration training when I drew every night in bed as a girl on a little chalk board until everything was blue, pink or yellow much to the frustration of my mother. My parents’ back garden was like a small woodland and with it came lots of wildlife and so I was always chasing something or examining some creepy crawly much to the horror of the rest of my family. When I was asked by my teachers and other kids if I was going to be an artist when I grew up, my reply was usually ‘No way, I am going to be a vet!’ To the relief of many animals it dawned on me that was much better at drawing animals than examining them.
