Skills:Illustrator & Author of kids books

I am an illustrator and author of children's books and I like to think that I have the best job in the world! I graduated from Kingston Uni in 1998 and have since worked hard in my studio for days, weeks, months and years.  I love creating characters  and sketching out stories as well as being involved in LOTS of other creative projects with young people.  When I'm not in my studio , I'm regularly found visiting  schools and libraries and events inspiring children. I often get to travel around the UK and visit other countries doing what I love!

Love the people!

I can't give away the final drawings JUST yet but here are a couple of people that are about to sit in one of Lexi's chairs! I simply traced over Lexi's sketches with a fine liner pen and added some gorgeous colours using my beloved marker pens. As an illustrator I thrive on new projects like this and I get a real buzz from bringing children's designs to life!

My quick designs...I want to go on Dragons Den with Lexi!

Well... after my brainstorm with Lexi, I couldn't resist having a go at designing some whacky chairs too! I really wish I'd have had Little Inventors when I was a little girl in the 1980's as I was always creating new things. 
Which one would you like in your home or school? I can imagine some of the looks these would get in our local libraries!

Designs received...WOW!!

Lexi did not disappoint. Her colourful chairs designs, after our brainstorming session were just epic! I  loved all of them and could just imagine them in the shops. I couldn't choose a favourite so I've decided to go ahead and create 6 designs for her. My brain was totally fired up too. Can't wait to work on the final designs!
