I grew up in Scotland wild, free and with the great outdoors to entertain me. On rainy days it was back to my drawing pad and an endless supply of books from the local library.
I studied Landscape Architecture in Gloucestershire and then worked in the UK and Oslo for a design consultancy before travelling to San Francisco to design a shop and grow up.
I live in East Sussex and have taught yoga for over 20 years to children, adults and beyond.
I think the art of being a good teacher duplicates that of a good illustrator. Both involve watching, listening to the unsaid and opening the door at the right time and in the right way. I create illustrations and stories to get people thinking, feeling, talking, and giggling.
Outside of illustrating and yoga I am a passionate cyclist, recyclist and upcyclist and love projects that involve pots of paint, hammers, or thread. Combinations I love: cheese/tea, coffee/chocolate, whisky/water, friends/laughter and family/family.
