I am a published illustrator and animator, who has simply loved drawing, telling stories and making things since I was old enough to hold a pencil. 


I have created illustration and animation work for a variety of clients including Oh Comely, Gwledd Conwy Feast, MOSTYN, Conwy Council, Kitchen Party Cooks, Conwy Kombucha Co., Cracked Eye Magazine, Magpie Resources, Wrap and Mardi Books. I have created animations for theatre, film and festivals across the UK. 

I am currently working on a research & development project funded by Arts Council of Wales and BCUHB, entitled 'Never Not a Mum', working with Mums of children aged 0-3 to produce animations about their parenthood experiences.


I am a Learning & Social Inclusion coordinator at a contemporary art gallery in Llandudno and I regularly run illustration and animation workshops for children and young people, in schools, galleries and festivals.

I have curated exhibitions, art directed short films, made music videos and fought dragons*. I love swimming, chocolate, fake fur, herons, yellow and Toby**. 


I am available for commissions, collaborations and workshops. I love rummaging through ideas of all sorts, so please drop me a line if you think we could work together. 


*Might not be true

**Not necessarily in that order
