About Our Guests
I was born and educated in London, and graduated from Kingston University with a BA in Illustration in 1999. In my 20s I worked as a medical secretary, primary and secondary school art teacher and university lecturer. When I was around 30 I was able go full-time as a freelance illustrator, author and comics-maker. I have published over 40 books and am a regular contributor to magazines including Tralalire, Pomme d’Api and the weekly story comic, The Phoenix.
In 2012 I was awarded a Sendak Fellowship, and together with two other illustrators spent a month in Connecticut in September 2012. In November 2017 I was the winner of the Observer/Cape/Comica graphic short story prize.
In recent years, I have become more interested in comics and graphic stories, particularly aimed at an all-ages audience. I have a regular newsletter with writing about creativity and lots of drawing.
