About

Here I am in a cave

Here I am in a cave

I am an author-illustrator and educator, teaching courses on comics, graphic novels, drawing and illustration at the Royal Drawing School in London and running workshops for adults and children at other locations nationwide.

My comics have appeared in print in the Observer and Vogue, and the first of three of my picture books will be published in Autumn 2018 by Pavilion Children’s. I am represented by Ed Wilson at the literary agency Johnson & Alcock.

I have an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art (Anglia Ruskin) and a BA in English Literature from Cambridge University.
