As you can tell, I love drawing. Drawing is what I do, every day. To be a children’s book illustrator, my dream job, you have to be good at creating characters and drawing animals, in character. So whenever I have free time, I draw different animals and learn about their lives and environments to give me ideas for stories but also because animals are amazing and I love them. I set myself briefs like the Marsupial project below and play around with colours which can also spur ideas later down the line.

To follow are a selection of my animal drawings, some real, some imagined from my collection.
