Hi & thanks for visiting my website! I’m the author and illustrator of Lily & The Polar Bears (Faber) and The Worries young fiction series coming out 14th January 2021 (Puffin)
I grew up in Brighton and now live in Paris with my lovely family. I’m a self-taught illustrator and studied English literature at Oxford University. One of my very first jobs was being an intern to Caroline Lucas in the European Parliament and it was brilliant. Working on green issues definitely influenced Lily & The Polar Bears! When I moved to Paris, I taught English to students at Sciences Po and ENSAE universities before opening my own language school for children, Anglofun.
Now, I mainly draw and write in my lovely garden studio. As well as picture books and young fiction, I also write and illustrate for older readers: watch this space for some exciting news soon!
