Hi, I'm RUTH!

I am a freelance illustrator and self-proclaimed "professional doodler" who loves creating silly and fun imagery that features bold colours and lots of yummy textures. I mostly work in children's publishing, having worked on multiple children's books for publishers around the world, and am in the process of writing some of my own.

I love telling stories through my work and am particularly drawn to fantasy stories, especially if they involve dragons, and so there's usually a sense of whimsy to my work. If you're interested in purchasing any of my work, please feel free to check out my Etsy Shop for prints, stationery, books and more!

Outside of work, I enjoy large cups of tea, dreaming of an endless pile of chocolate to enjoy, reading, knitting, and spending time with my studio buddies - my three chaotic and reckless degus (giant gerbils).

If you'd like to work with me, please feel free to reach out via the form below or email

If you're a publisher and would like to work with me on your next book project, please contact my agent, Amy -
