Hello! 

A little bit about me...

I am an illustrator from County Dublin, Ireland. I have a BA honours degree in Fine art from The National College of Art and Design in Dublin.


I am a recent graduate from the MA in Children's Book illustration at The Cambridge School of art. I have always wanted to write and illustrate stories and I am delighted to have studied children's book illustration at masters level. 


Most of my work is centred around animal characters, giving them humorous and childlike personalities. I experiment with many different materials including pen and ink, watercolour,  and digital. More recently I have grown to love the process of screen printing. 


Recently I won third place in the Carmelite prize 2017 for illustrating a text by acclaimed author Rachel Bright.
