The tragedy of being hooked on fantasy books at a young age is coming to terms with your wardrobe never revealing wintry parallel dimensions and no amount of interesting-looking second hand jewellery unlocking magical powers.

Undeterred by my real life’s complete lack of cooperation with my imagination, I created my own magical worlds.

Firstly by filling dozens of exercise books with written stories (which, thankfully, will never see the light of day) and then as pictures in sketchbooks. I filled hundreds of pages with the characters, creatures and monsters I conjured up in head. (And because I was a tween girl, horses. A. lot. of. Horses.)

These days I specialise in quirky, detailed illustrations of creatures – some real, some imagined, all lovingly rendered in coloured pencil or ballpoint pen.
