After taking redundancy from a call-centre, I pursued my dream job. Five years later, I've written and illustrated 16 picture books, won numerous awards and toured the UK, USA, Italy and Taiwan. I illustrated Tim Minchin's When I Grow Up from his hit musical Matilda and illustrated a cover of The Famous Five. I'm a proud patron of Swindon Libraries and recently designed a new children's library card for them. I am red-green colourblind, which has influenced the way I work.
