I was brought up in Lincolnshire and I have always loved drawing, when I was little I was always happy with some paper and a pencil. I thought of art and design as something that I love but I never thought I would be lucky enough to be able to work in the same field, with hard work it is wonderful to have achieved it. I have had supportive parents who encouraged me to do what I enjoyed and I come from an artistic family too so art has always been encouraged.

 

I went to Lincoln University and graduated with first class honours in Illustration and, as you have probably seen in Wayne's biography, a husband too. When I left University I won two awards at New Designers and this started me on the path as an Illustrator. Wayne and I now work from home together as illustrators in Lincoln (and I wouldn't have it any other way too).
