I got a BA in philosophy from the University of Cambridge but what I’ve always really wanted to do is draw and tell stories. One thing led to another, and now I’m a graduate of the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art!

Things I love:

  • observational drawing

  • people-watching

  • silliness (especially goat-related!)

  • tea

Things that get me excited:

  • printmaking

  • graphic novels

  • beautifully illustrated non-fiction

  • woolly jumpers
