Fiona has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an artist when she grew up.

Fiona moved to London in 2000 to study for an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art. A combination of her obsession with picture books and the arrival of her first son led her down the path of illustration and she hasn't looked back since.

Nothing makes her happier than splashing watercolours and inks and conjuring up new characters - often influenced by the exploits of her two sons.

Upcoming Publications: 

I LIKE BEES, I DON'T LIKE HONEY (6th July 2017, Faber & Faber)

I like bees . . . but I don't like honey!

I like my imaginary friend . . . but I don't like it when people say he's not real.

A beautifully illustrated, funny and thought-provoking book for building confidence and encouraging children to express their feelings - about anything and everything. This book will help enable a much broader conversation about individuality, fear and hopes.

All author royalties are being donated to the NSPCC.
