Where are you from/where do you live now?
How long have you been making art?
I've been making art for as long as I can remember. My parents say I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and I've never stopped.
Where did you go to university and what did you study?
What kind of materials do you use?
Have you illustrated children's picture books?
Yes, I've worked with one publisher as well as a couple of self-publishing authors on picture books. In addition to some formal training, I've also attended several literature conferences and I'm a member of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
I have a great idea for a picture book and I'm going to be sending it to a publisher soon. Would you be interested in illustrating it?
I appreciate being considered to illustrate your book! However, if you're submitting the manuscript to a traditional publisher, as opposed to self-publishing the book, they will most likely choose the illustrator for you. It's very rare that an author gets to choose their illustrator when working with a publisher. However, you can trust that they are professionals and know an illustrator who will help bring your book to life!
I'm self-publishing a book and I'm looking for an illustrator. Would you be interested in illustrating my book?
Are you taking on commission work for smaller projects such as single portraits?
Occasionally I'll take commissions for smaller custom artwork. To inquire, please feel free to contact me with details about what you would like to commission, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Can you change the colour of a print/the contents within a picture/etc?
