I live and work in a little eco house in Ouseburn, Newcastle upon Tyne with my husband and two children. I love to draw, design and make things. Since leaving Edinburgh College of Art in the late 1990’s, I’ve worked in-house, on a freelance basis, as an illustrator, product/licensed character developer, a designer/maker of jewellery, greetings cards and wrapping paper – never a dull moment! Inspirations are many – from knitted toys, Japanese design, and Scandinavian Chic to Modernism, Dick Bruna and Info graphics. I’m drawn to anything that is quirky, humorous and minimal in design, and hope that this is reflected in my illustration.
