I’m an illustrator for the past 15 years with a focus on children’s books. What I love is that children’s literature is at the intersection of literacy and art appreciation—it’s a foundational reference for the mind to come. I’m keen to find the distinct ways in which children’s book literature can empower and celebrate cultural differences and social justice. I’m interested in stories that foster empathy and visualise divergent perspectives. Children of all backgrounds need to see themselves and their experiences within the storytelling that is available to them.
