I'm an illustrator based in Scotland working in mixed media (mostly collage, coloured pencil and gouache paint) for all sorts of original artwork, print and web applications. I'm always happy to discuss your artwork requirements and to create something bespoke for you.

I gained a first class degree in Illustration and Printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2002, before going on to study publishing. Having spent several years working in arts management, I returned to illustration more recently, with a special focus on illustration for children. My first picture book as author and illustrator, 'Molly's Circus', was published by Little Door Books in April 2020.

I live in Kinross with my husband, three young children, four chickens and a cat. I love circuses, mid-century homeware, pattern and printed ephemera. I'm passionate about community arts and wholeheartedly believe in the delight that experiencing and making art brings to all our lives.
