I’m currently working on a graphic memoir for Myriad Editions, which was shortlisted in their First Fictions First Graphic Novel competition in 2012. It’s due out in 2015. I also coordinate the bi-annual meeting of Bristol Laydeez do Comics.
My illustration work has included greetings cards, editorial and children’s books, with over 300 cards and 60 books illustrated. In recent years I’ve also become interested in writing, and my first two children’s picture books as author were published in October 2012. I’m represented Bright Literary Agency.
My very first work in print appeared when I was thirteen, in Jackie magazine, 1984. I was a little over-excited – it was a drawing of Jon Moss from Culture Club, printed on the letters page (left).
Interests include music, reading (esp. graphic novels), art exhibitions, cycling, walking and growing trees from seed. I play electric bass, and violin, occasionally contributing to friends’ recordings. I play a short spell of violin in the new British film, Dummy Jim.
*I post some very personal work here, and although I respect and welcome the connections and empathy that this can bring, I’m not qualified or able to counsel people who have had similar experiences.
