The Queen cast a Spell - The Wild Swans     She Dipped her Hand into the Pool - The Wild Swans     

"I work in colored pencil and use friends and family as
my models − the princess is my friend's daughter, Charlotte
and the prince is my son Tom. I place great emphasis on the costume detail as I have a passion for costume and history
and I want to convince the reader that these are real people."
"I think my work is quite traditional. I was heavily influenced
by old picture books illustrated by Rackham, Dulac and
Heath-Robinson that my mother bought me from jumble-sales."
