Hi I am Abby, an illustrator, an arts & crafts teacher for M.Y.O London and Creative Jungle Co, and an orange cat specialist (qualification not yet formally recognised). I live and work from my jointly owned van, Obi with my partner and our aforementioned orange cat Fry. I love illustration in all its forms and I am an avid reader of children's books having never felt the pull to more age appropriate ones. I have illustrated several self-published books (four completed and four in progress) which I am very proud of, you can even see a couple of them on Amazon! I have over four and a half years of experience working with companies and individuals on many types of illustration commissions such as books, maps, portraits, logos, social promotions, posters, murals, school readings and in-person and online workshops too. you can see a selection of the clients I've worked with below. I also work with M.Y.O – a creative studio for adults (now through Creative Jungle Company creating and leading online workshops).
In most exciting news, I have been accepted onto the Children's Book Illustration part-time Masters at the Cambridge School of Art (ARU) starting this September 2021. I have also been awarded a scholarship for the full cost of my MA by QEST, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and I am extremely proud to be one of their new scholars for 2021. You can find me in their very varied and eclectic directory here.
