My main influences are medieval art, cartoons, William Blake, folk songs and tales. I have an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art.
All the books in this exhibition were written by my friend, Rachel Braddock; we met at teacher training college. Her poems became the series Bold Beasts, published by her husband Bob independently in Liverpool. Altogether, there are ten titles in print. Rachel passed away last year, but left many more poems which we hope to publish.
I am also a songwriter.
