I’m Christine, an illustrator based in the Midlands, UK. I’ve been creating stories and illustrations as long as I can remember, having been inspired by the magical picture books I loved as a child.

My journey to a career in children’s illustration has been a long and winding path – I graduated in Fine Art from Falmouth College of Arts in 2007, and it was only in 2018 that my artistic pursuits eventually lead me to my ultimate passion – illustrating children’s books! Since then I’ve been lucky enough to work with some wonderful publishers creating books that children can adore for years to come. Having grown up in a non-traditional family, diversity is so important to me, and my aim is always to make sure every child can see themselves and their families represented in my work.

When I’m not drawing, I can be found amongst a ginormous collection of my favourite picture books, with my husband and our beloved hamster.

I’m represented by the fabulous Plum Agency for all work related to children’s publishing.
