Thoughtful illustration by Sam Goodlet
I have illustrated a number of publications and interpretive materials with an emphasis on natural history and animals, including Bloomsbury’s first publication in the new Sigma popular science series – Sex on Earth: A Celebration of Animal Reproduction by Jules Howard, published in October 2014.
My aim in life is to make a difference using my creativity, and I have over 14 years experience of doing this in the charitable and education sectors.
Creativity is a powerful tool to reach out and engage us all in science, nature, heritage, community, emotional issues and causes. It’s a joy to have put this in action and helped charities, individuals and organisations find new and exciting ways to communicate their messages. I have run puppet shows in community libraries, been an artist in residence in a preschool, taught teenagers to paint, dug ponds with young offenders and turned a former pub in to a wildlife art installation. I worked at conservation charity Froglife for 7 years, designing a new brand for them in 2010, running projects and adding creative elements to a number of their successful Heritage Lottery Fund bids.
