I graduated from the Childrens’ Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art last year, having worked for years with trucks and transport in North London.

I was lucky enough to have my first book ‘Dog on a Train’ taken up by publishers Old Barn Books at the Bologna Book Fair that year. It was published in 2015 and was long listed in the Klaus Flugge Awards, and short listed in the BBD&P Awards this year.

‘Michael’s Yard’, another of my books received Highly Commended in the Macmillam Awards 2015.

My second book ‘Dog on a Digger’ published by Old Barn Books, comes out in October. I live in North London with my family and dog and cat. Trucks and the urban still appear in my work, as do loads of other things.
