For the last 20 years my working life has primarily been the illustration of books. I have learned so much from the repeatedly challenging process of visually engaging with the words and narratives of other people.
My imagination stretches and widens to find many and varied ways to build images and drawings, paintings, colors and lines, that will fit as if hand in hand with the writer's work. My intention always, to respect the universe they created whilst also visually contributing to it, so that the story grows in its artistry.
What really fascinates me though, is working with light and color and the power they have to elicit, in the reader / viewer, distinct and multiple feelings and emotions, beyond the drawn shapes and written narrative of the words and illustrations themselves.
