When did you begin to draw and when did you decide that you’d like to illustrate children’s books?
I’ve enjoyed drawing ever since I can remember. My sister and I were always doodling at home and we sometimes made ‘books’ and ‘magazines’! We were always running out of paper and drew on anything we could find. It wasn’t until I got to secondary school that I realised I could draw realistically from life. My favourite thing in Art class was when the teacher would set down a few random objects and tell us to draw them.

When I look at a book I always study the illustrations!READ MORE
