Reader, writer and professional daydreamer (very accomplished at this last one). Huge fan of 20th Century illustrators Charles Keeping, Gerald Scarfe and Mervyn Peake. Totally in love with the stories of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy, and almost anything with a ghost in it!
