From as early as Helen could remember, she has always wanted to be an Author & Illustrator. As a child she was fascinated by children’s books and used to enjoy writing her own stories and rhymes to which she would then illustrate.
Helen graduated in 2001 with a BA Hons in Illustration from the University of Central Lancashire, where she discovered working digitally and never looked back! Since graduating, her versatility has allowed me to work as a Graphic and Product Designer as well as an Illustrator, working on a wide range of products ranging from toys and games, to magazines, greeting cards, packaging, pet products and of course, children’s books. Her work has been sold to many major high street retailers and publishers, both in the UK and Worldwide.
Helen describes her illustrations as cheerful, fun, colourful and commercial and her favourite aspect of her work is creating new characters and the worlds they inhabit.
She works much better when drinking large amounts of herbal tea and singing loudly to her extremely eclectic music collection. “Thankfully I work alone!”View Full Bio
