But it took her un­til the age of 29 to pluck up the courage to quit her day job and be­come an illustrator full­time. Yet within a year she was pub­lished in a chil­dren’s book.

“What I most en­joy in mak­ing art is vi­su­al­is­ing com­pelling or dreamy at­mos­pheres. My art is of­ten seen as sto­ry­book­ish or naïve, be­cause I’m not very se­ri­ous about re­al­ism. I’m much more in­ter­ested in colour, tex­ture and ob­scure de­tail,” she says.

“I in­tend my art to con­vey a story as well as emo­tion. With images I find it’s pos­si­ble to cre­ate com­plex mes­sages and feel­ings that are open to sub­jec­tive in­ter­pre­ta­tion.”
