"My work lies between fiction and reality, exploring attention to detail, humour and the surreal. I am interested in illustration that challenges conventional formats and subjects found in illustration books today. I adapt and unpack complex and often personal subjects to make them accessible and vibrant for both children and adults. The relationship with the reader and an understanding of graphic and spatial elements as a whole is really important in my work, underlining and emphasising my exploration of the book as an object."
