I am an artist and illustrator from Brighton, UK. My original work combines paint, found materials, scribbles and drawings representative of everyday things. My paintings have been exhibited in many galleries from London to New York and purchased by private collectors
My debut book Who's In the tree that shouldn't be? received a highly commended award at the Cambridgeshire Read it Again! Award. With this book, I have also been involved in story events – reading, drawing and masking making with children at Waterstones, Kew gardens and several independent book shops and nursery’s in London and Sussex.
Two more Templar titles followed – Around the World and Through the Town in the 'Trace the Trail' series which were published in 2015. These pre school board books have been translated into French and Spanish.
Town and Country, Ivy Kids is a fun turnaround book for young explorers and the winner of Best Children's Book in the Junior Design Awards 2017.
Due to publish in August 2018 is 'Awesome'. Marvin (a moose) and Woody (a beaver) are BFF's who's friendship is tested.
New ideas are in development and I am working on several books with stickers a plenty!
