The tragedy of being hooked on fantasy books at a young age is coming to terms with your wardrobe never revealing wintry parallel dimensions and no amount of interesting-looking second hand jewellery unlocking magical powers.
Undeterred by my real life’s lack of cooperation with my imagination, I created my own magical worlds at a young age. Firstly by filling dozens of exercise books with written stories (which, thankfully, will never see the light of day) and then as pictures in sketchbooks.
Growing up, I filled hundreds and hundreds of pages with the characters, creatures and monsters I conjured up in head.
(And horses. A. lot. of. Horses.)
These days I specialise in quirky, detailed illustrations of creatures – some real, some imagined, all lovingly rendered in coloured pencil or ballpoint pen.
I live in Devon, UK, have a blind rescue dog and an obsession with boardgames.
