I've braved a rare selfie in support of #justacardweek so here are my Top 7 #meetthemaker -style facts... 1) This is me attempting some #drystone walling this afternoon - my favourite days involve #dungarees and either #mud or #paint !
2) I started as an #illustrator for other people's books and love narrative work. More recently I also set up the #smalteasel website to sell my illustrations directly - it really does make such a difference when people buy #justacard . Thank you if you #shopsmall !
3) My favourite book as a child was #thepatchworkcat with #nicolabayley 's beautiful illustrations
4) Mine's an earl grey please
5) #jeevesthedog and #elgarthecat say thanks to those of you who #shopindependent
- you are the reason they have catnip & tennis balls
6) I grew up in the land of dragons but have also lived in Scotland and England so perhaps I'll make it to Northern Ireland one day... 7) My secret & long-held ambition is to be on @bbcradio4 's #thearchers . Not so secret now of course...
