Statement

I write & illustrate childrens books - this includes character development and page layout - greetings cards, wrapping paper, surface pattern for ceramics.

I use a variety of media including watercolour, soft chalk pastels, charcoal, pencils and acrylics. I like to encourage participants to experiment with colour and form as well as more literal observational drawing.

My Greetings cards have appropriate titles for the sentiment they visually depict. This type of exercise can be used to encourage workshop participators to link words and images creatively, beyond the obvious, pushing their boundaries.

Working with children and books accesses many areas of literacy in the curriculum. My books are used as part of the curriculum in schools in Wales - some have been translated into Welsh. Illustration encourages participants to create beyond the words.  

I also design and undertake Mural painting for schools. These are then used by teachers throughout the school year groups to complete literacy projects.
