About me

Location Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Introduction I am an artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work across a wide variety of disciplines and I have a BA in Printmaking and a Masters Degree in Illustration from Edinburgh College of Art, where I sometimes teach illustration students. I am currently Artist in Residence at the Sick Kids hospital in Edinburgh where I try to do drawings to make the patients feel better. I illustrate the LOLLIPOP AND GRANDPA series of books, published by Phoenix Yard, and have also illustrated for Frances Lincoln, Walker Books, Barrington Stoke and Hachette. I have enjoyed being the in-house designer for both of the amazing Edinburgh shops Paper Tiger and Studio One since 2011. I am registered with the Scottish Book Trust and Live Literature as a visiting Illustrator, and have a lot of experience in running workshops and events in Primary schools, libraries and book festivals. I am available for commission so please get in touch if you have any enquiries.
