I am having great fun at the moment with my art supplies.


There are paints, crayons and coloured pencils all over my desk.


I am working on a new series of stories and at this stage it is all about playing and exploring.


I am also making felted models as part of my illustrations – and I am having a whale of a time!


The artwork helps inspire me to write the stories, and the writing helps to inspire my artwork.


That’s the great thing about the world of books (especially books for children) – even though the work is hard, and often takes a long time to get right – it’s such fun I can’t imagine doing anything else.

So keep drawing, and making art, and writing – and who knows? One day you could be part of this world and write your own books!
