My published fiction to date has included a children’s book, Splat!, for Hamish Hamilton in their Cartwheel series. I am currently illustrating the text again, as it is out of print and the text copyright has returned to me.
I’m also working on illustrating for children’s books and for editorial content. You can find my illustration site here.
