I have been a professional artist all my life. I have illustrated over 30 children's books, created large public murals and now work as a reportage-artist, sketching life as it happens, often alongside academic researchers. In the time between sketching residencies, I create hand-stitched, fine-art textiles, translating my love of mark-making and colour into thread.
I am an Urban Sketchers correspondent and my book Sketching People was published by Search Press and Barrons in 2016.
I give inspirational lectures, and run workshops, both in the UK and abroad, for adults and in schools. I have delivered events in Beijing, Brazil, Spain, the Dominican Republic, Chicago, and Perth, Australia.
