"No worries, glad things are going well. Yes when things calm down a bit we should hook up. I quit my job at NUCA and finish on July 16th so after then I remain self employed tutoring and freelancing so my time will be controlled by me, yippee!…"
'want to be' Illustrator of childrens books.I have done some greetings cards, seed packs for Mr Fothergills and Thompson and Morgan, some illustrations for educational magazines.
I trained as a graphic designer at Great Yarmouth Art School and worked in publishing and packaging design. Whist raising my children I built a portfolio of illustrations and have had exhibitions of my work in Suffolk.
Please take a look at my website. I work to commission but will also allow use of portfolio pieces, email me for prices.

What are you working on at the moment?
A private piece for a friend who is about to have a baby.
Also Alice in Wonderland.
Just completed 2 charity Christmas cards.
Written a plan for a simple children's book, pics are itching to get out my head and on to paper!
If you had to recommend just one children's book you've read in the last year, what would it be?
Walker Books - Why the Animals Came to Town.
What is the most important thing you learned about writing or illustrating this year?
That I don't do enough. I have missed being creative in my 'day' job and I long desperately to illustrate more - listen to my heart, fulfill my dreams.
Hi Emma, I just saw your message about meeting up at the conference for an epub chat. That discussion thread was left from last years conference so I've deleted it. I won't have time to organise a meeting this year but I'm sure if you start a discussion then others will want to join you.
