She has worked with several authors: French-Polish author Elisabeth Brami on a beautiful dictionary of animals, Le Dico rigolo des animaux published by Casterman but also with beloved British author Michael Murpurgo for the story Cool as a Cucumber, published by Walker Books, and Michelle Robinson on the hilarious 10 Fat Sausages, published by Andersen Press.

We are delighted to welcome her at the South Ken Kids Festival on Saturday 24 November where she will meet the children for a funny comic character drawing workshop based on Welcome To Oddleigh, and a Live Drawing with famous Axel Scheffler and French illustrator Ronan Badel!
