Self portrait in home studio.



Hello! I am an illustrator and picture book writer who grew grew up in Oslo, Norway, where I spent a good chunk of my childhood daydreaming and drawing poor and melancholic children from the 19th century. Don't ask me why!

I studied art and illustration at Falmouth and Edinburgh College of Arts a long time ago and finished off my education by doing a Master in Children's book illustration at Cambridge School of Art, where I graduated in 2018 with a Distinction.
