Thank you for visiting.

I am an author and illustrator living and working by the sea in Dublin.

I've always enjoyed the interplay between words and images. At my fine art graduate show, I explored this through the medium of cake decoration!

Some favourite things - really old silent films, monster music, an endless supply of mint chocolate, trees in the wind, dogs in the snow, birds just being birds, and the Skelligs!

The first book I've both written and illustrated is Finn's First Song - A Whaley Big Adventure. Finn, a baby humpback whale, gets lost on his first migration, but learns a lot along the way. Published by O'Brien Press.

Where Are You, Puffling?, my debut in picture book illustration, is retold by Erika McGann from a story by my uncle Sean.
It's published by O'Brien Press, also in Irish as Cá Bhfuil Puifín Beag?
A special edition was published for World Book Day 2020, becoming a bestseller!

My next book, also written by Erika McGann, will be published autumn 2021.
