Associate Agent: Emily Talbot
Assistant: Molly Jamieson


As a child I watched hours of Take Hart doodling away with my felt tips in front of the gas fire munching on wagon wheels... I am now a freelance illustratior, screen printer, and happy mum of three dancing in my studio in the heart of Yorkshire. Over the years I have illustrated for many clients including Marks & Spenser, Piccadilly Press, Oxford University Press, The Post Office, Asda, Clinton Cards, UK Greetings, Urban Graphics, Woodmansterne, Hallmark and Sensible Dave! My work is inspired by my family life, quality time with my wonderful children and a love of children's picture books old and new.... and I’m still fuelled by the odd Wagon Wheel (although they seem much smaller these days).

See my inspiration and creative journey at 'Lil Sonny Sky, my online mental floss, diary and sketch book -  Instagram - 

I hope my illustrations makes you feel happy and positive.

WHOSE BOTTOM IS IN THE WILD (7th May 2019, Boxer Books)

Whose bottom is that, big and wrinkly? Whose bottom is that, covered in stripes? Kids will have fun as they play a guessing game and try to figure out whose bottom stays cool in the river (a hippo), is way up high (a giraffe), is feathery pink (a flamingo), and has a happy waggy tail (the lion). This humorous book is sure to be a hit with every child.

WHOSE BOTTOM IS ON THE FARM (7th May 2019, Boxer Books)

Come to the farm where all the animals are bottoms up--until you turn the page! Can you guess whose bottom is that, wallowing in the mud? (A pig.) What about the bottom bobbing in the pond? Quack, it's a duck! From the wooly-bottomed sheep to a goat with a snowy white tail, this is a fun look at animal bottom.
