There isn’t a day that goes by where I can’t quite believe I’m an illustrator! When I was a little girl, illustrators were my heroes, I was never much good at reading, so pictures were my thing.
In fact, if you were to go back in time and tell that 8 year old girl that when you grow up you’ll be a full time illustrator, with your own studio where you’d spend all your days drawing, I think she would have passed out on the floor. Back then, I’d spend many an hour just looking at books, I can very vividly remember getting home from school to just copy illustrations from them! Many a night I’d do this just in the hope that maybe one day my drawings might be as good.
I had lots of fave books and I always dreamt that one day I’d be able to work on a series of small books for small hands. So today is a very special day, today a range of small books for small hands go on sale illustrated by ME! My dream come true!
I’ve been working with the ridiculously talented Shonette Bason Wood and Chris Connaughton (They're superstars to work with!) to bring to life a series called ‘Twist MY Tales’! They are full of boldness, laugh-out -loud moments, colour and simplicity …get yours hands (whether they're BIG or small) on them here …and let me know what you think.
Until next time thank you SO much
Ps As I write this I’m working on the next story for the collection :-)
