I am a writer and illustrator currently working on a graphic biography of Virginia Woolf which will be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in July 2024 in the UK, by Pantheon in the US, Grasset in France, Lumen in Spain, Rowolht in Germany and Companhia das Letras in Brazil. In 2022, I received the Lady Antonia Fraser Grant for a biography of a woman.

I am an LAHP funded PhD candidate in Creative Writing at King's College London. Prior to an MA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, I studied English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford. While at Camberwell, I founded Whip zine, a magazine of political cartoons and satirical writing by women. Whip was featured in VogueIt's Nice ThatI News, the BBC, and Riposte magazine, amongst others. 

I have taught seminar classes on Creative Non-Fiction at King's and on Virginia Woolf at Wells College, New York. I spoke at the 2022 International Virginia Woolf Conference and at a panel event at the Tate Modern on the theme of 'Must Satire Offend'. In 2022, my work was featured in Issue 99 of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany. I have written reviews for the TLS, amongst other publications. In 2018, I was included in The Inking Woman: 250 Years of Women Cartoon and Comic Artists in Britain, published by Myriad Editions. I was a judge for the Young Cartoonist of the Year Award 2022.

I am based in South-East London and grew up in Stockport.
