"Pirate Worm crew" 2015

"I have been a professional illustrator since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2000, mainly working in the children's book industry.

My work has been published by Penguin, HarperCollins, Macmillan and Bloomsbury amongst others.

Recent books illustrated include "How to Write Your Best Story Ever" by Christopher Edge (Oxford University Press), the Marsh Road Mystery Series by Elen Caldecott (Bloomsbury) and my latest picture book, published by Andersen Press and written by Angela McAllister, "Samson the Mighty Flea" is out September 2016.

I also design and illustrate limited edition prints for children through my company Rootytoot Editions and they have featured in the Guardian Christmas Wishlist. 

My work has also been shortlisted for the Serco Prize for Illustration in 2014 and as a result, my entry was exhibited in the London Transport Museum.

When I'm not illustrating, I can be found with my two boys and a football on Peckham Rye Common, watching my beloved Tottenham Hotspur or visiting my second home, Cornwall.

When I am illustrating, I mostly listen to Radiohead, Pink Floyd and Four Tet and like discovering new music on Spotify."
