Hello, I’m Amy and I like telling stories with as much mischief as possible.
My illustrations for The Midnight Adventures of Ruru and Kiwi, commissioned by Penguin Random House New Zealand and written by Clare Scott, won the 2019 Storylines Gavin Bishop Award for a previously unpublished illustrator, and were longlisted in the World Illustration Awards 2020.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts and am currently studying towards an MA Illustration at Falmouth University, which I finish in May 2021.
Aside from being constantly attached to the end of a pencil, I also like to ride on the backs of horses, the wheels of bicycles, and the pages of books.
I live in Palmerston North, New Zealand with my husband, Faris and our and extremely grumpy-bitch-cat, Lily.
