  3. This is my favourite monoprint from the book I put together recently that’s just off to Bologna as part of @cambridge_school_of_art 
It is reminiscent of the first time I saw a plastic bag under the sea snagged on a piece of coral. It was oddly beautiful until I realised what it was.... #savetheocean #wwf #csacbi #plasticpollution #plasticbag #savetheturtles #saveourseas #kidlit4climate #worldwaterday

  6. Finally come to a kind of conclusion with my book about the sea and the invasion of plastic. We need to work together to help the world I so fell in love with from being destroyed for our children. #plasticpollution #savetheocean #childrensbookillustration #kidlit4climate

  7. I was asked by a little friend to do a little doodle for #kidlit4climate 
Such a great cause. I’m sorry I got there so late. But I got there :)
Thanks so much to @emmaillustrate for setting this up.

  8. I’m missing the print room and tutorials terribly at the moment. But experimenting with new ways of working. Still not sure.... thoughts? Help?! How can I recreate the softness of monoprinting without an offset litho press?! #childrensbookillustration #experiment #nevergiveup #csacbi

  14. Final day today of our graduation show in London at @candidartstrust Angel. 
I’ll be there from around 1130. Be lovely to see you! 
It’s been the best year and a half of my life. I’ve found my tribe and I never want to stop. I know that this is only the beginning of my adventure but I have a feeling that it’s going to be ok. 
I’ve got someone arriving in April that I want to strive to be the best for. Not to be a quitter, to be the best version of me. And I can’t wait. ☺️ #30weekspregnant #thisgirlcan #cambridgeschoolofart #csacbi

  22. Working on something I feel very passionate about. The plastic pollution of the sea. 
I used to dive in Indonesia for a long time. Sadly, I don’t do it so much these days but I miss it and remember the times as some of the happiest. The peace and tranquility of the ocean is bliss to me. I am not afraid there. It is to me like a walk in the forest amidst the animals. Like a watching angel. 
Sadly plastic is destroying our oceans and it’s wildlife. 
We have to be more careful. 
We have to try to stem the flow of this deadly tide. Before it’s too late.

  31. It’s been quite a journey. 18 months of trials and tribulations, confusion and growing clarity, incredible friendships cemented and adventures in abundance and my final work for my MA in children’s book illustration is in. I’ve loved every second. 
Now fingers crossed and keep on working! #hardwork #illustration #csa #cambridgeschoolofart #childrensbookillustration
