HELLO! WELCOME TO MY BLOG!

 
 
Above are four brand new illustrations of female characters from Grimm's Fairytales. I am also making these into embroideries. Will post soon!

Coco Princess Picture Book



 
Here are some illustrations from my latest book 'Coco Princess' which was published earlier this year by Blue Rabbit Books. The story is about a little princess who only likes the largest thing of all.
 
Below is a rough sketch of one of the pages. The book was published in Korea; So you can see one sketch in English and one which uses Korean text.
 
 
 
 And below are some photos of the actual book!
 

 






And below are a few pages from another book I have just completed entitled JUMP TO THE SUN! A children's book on the subject of P.E soon to be published by Pearson.
 


Watercolours



 
Here are a set of three illustrations I have recently worked on for greeting cards for Easter, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. I used watercolour as I wanted them to look very delicate. The Mother's Day card has fabric collaged birds......

.....And below are a set of three illustrations I made as a student. They were painted on location in Staithes, North Yorkshire.
