Gypsy Queen Children's Book

I have recently had the pleasure of working on a children's book, titled 'The Gypsy Queen', which has just been published in California!

I have had such a fun time illustrating this family adventure book, the prompts were all so fun and imaginative, and the final print came out stunning! Special thanks to my friend at Disney, Megan, for reccomending me for the contract.

I have made a dedicated page within my gallery for this book, please click here to see more about the project including photos, and where you can get a copy! 

Bring on the next project!











Texan Collaboration - Crafty Cats

21 Jan 2019

The past few months have had a lot of exciting opportunities present themselves, I'm very excited to start sharing some of them with you soon!

One of those opportunities was the chance to work with Texas based business Crafty Cats, which creates all kinds of bath soaps, balms, candles and more to fund animal rehabilitation! We have worked on a couple of collaborative projects, including this general illustration for the business for advertising. The image depicts the company owner and her inspiration, her cat, Demetria. 

The business owner, Mandi, also sent me some of their products all the way to the UK to test. Amazing! I'm so impressed with the quality of these items and they smell divine, I knew they had arrived before reading the delivery box because of the lovely smell. Please do go take a look at their work and save some furry lives whilst you're there!

I've been so thrilled to work with you, Crafty Cats. Thank you.

Liverpool Giants Spectacular - Street Performance Participation

5 Oct 2018

This weekend I am assisting in the Liverpool Giants Spectacular, the largest street performance the city of Liverpool will have staged to date!

It is the last time the giants are performing anywhere in the world, and I am so privileged to be a part of it. I am a Benevol, walking with the ‘Big Giant’ every day. Friday in New Brighton, Saturday and Sunday in Liverpool. Please come and share this adventure with me and the giants!

The Giants are owned, and performed through the company Royal de Luxe.

Update after the event

Below is a painting I produced using watercolour and pencils, which was gifted to the core production team (and indirectly to the company director, Jean-Luc Courcolt) during the event.

Events official documentation available at this link

The weekend itself was easily the best of my life. I cried, near constantly, with happy tears by the last day. I have made friends for life. I have walked alongside a 30 ft gentle giant, and been doused with a fire engine with him for his 'bath'.

On the last day, I was so incredibly lucky to be positioned in just the right place to walk alongside the Little Girl Giant in her final walk down the front. I cried the entire walk. When the Giants went to sleep forever, us Benevols all sat front row bawling out eyes out. It was a stunning weekend of performance art, and one the city will never forget. It brought millions into the cities economy.

This experience is something I will hold in my heart forever. I have had the absolute best time of my life. Life does not seem nearly as exciting being 6 ft tall again. Goodbye Giants. I love you so very much.

Children's Book Project: The Gypsy Queen

29 Jun 2018

Hi all,

Those of you who follow me on my other social media like instagram already know this, but over the past few weeks I have been working intensely on a new project. This project is a children's book being published over in America entitled 'The Gypsy Queen/La Reina Gitana'. How exciting!

The book is a dual english and spanish book following the adventure holiday of a family (and their dog) across 6 of the USA's West coast states. They have a family van, and a caravan (The Gypsy Queen) which becomes an integral character in it's own right, and very much part of the family.

I'm very excited to be on this contract, though can't share too much at the moment. I am however permitted to share a couple of Works in Progress, see below!

There are some more announcements to come soon unrelated to this project - so keep your ears tuned and your eyes peeled!





Bonnie is my favourite character
