I was born in Montreal, Canada and have always loved drawing.
I was very fortunate that both my parents embraced my love of art and encouraged me to follow my passion. As I was not particularly academic I found myself on an art foundation course near me in Toronto, which led me onto studying Illustration.
I am married with 3 children and now live on the South Coast of England. My focus changed for a bit when I became a Mom for a few years, but that creative thing inside me never changed. Picture books and creating art are a big thing in our house, even now with my youngest being 10, we all still always find ourselves building and creating whacky and interesting things! I have worked on my first picture book My Lighthouse written by Rend Collective, which is available to buy on their store.
I support a charity called Links International, my first print ’Stop’ is available to buy on this store and all profits go directly to them.
