I live in Devon I work as an illustrator, writer , performer and a blogger. I also unschool our three children. You can read all about it here at our blog site, where I write frequently. I illustrated a book called ‘Excuse Me, I’m trying to Read’ by Mary Jo Amani, which was published by Charlesbridge Publishing. I am proud to say it won the NAESP award for Best picture book 2011!
I have worked on seven books which are listed below. Which have been published in South Africa, America, Holland and the UK. I have done illustrations for books, magazines and websites. I spent fifteen years living in South Africa, where we had a restaurant and we also had a fruit farm.
My training was in theatre so prior to this illustration work I spent ten years working as an actress. I toured Europe with a theatre company. I also had my own theatre company that went to India with a devised theatre show.
I am at present writing a new vegan cookbook. I currently live in Devon with my three children and my husband. I hope you enjoy the pictures on my website and please feel free to contact me.
