I have illustrated many books for children, including the award-winning Song of Pentecost by W.J. Corbett, books by Roald Dahl, Terry Jones, Marina Warner, Ted Hughes, Dick-King Smith and recently J.K. Rowling. I was also a regular illustrator for the children's TV programme Jackanory and my own story Hairy Hairy was televised by the BBC. For 10 years, I was a lecturer at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. I am now a senior lecturer in illustration at Middlesex University and also a visiting lecturer at Kingston University's prestigious illustration Department and am a frequent visiting illustrator for the National Federation of Children's Books and South East Arts.
