Cee grew up surrounded by paintings and sculptures and was encouraged to draw from an early age. After school, she studied Graphic Design and began a tentative illustration career whilst at college, designing punk record covers and gothic stationery! Then she had other jobs for many years, which were totally unrelated to art. It wasn’t until 2000 that she focused on drawing again and once she had some commissions she left her office job to concentrate on illustration, starting with greetings cards and craft designs. In 2008, she attained her MA in Children’s Book Illustration and since then she has illustrated several picture books and board books. She finds inspiration in nature and has a fondness for creepy crawlies, which means they often turn up in her pictures! She paints in watercolour and acrylics and loves getting messy in her studio (a converted shed in the garden), where she watches the birds from her window.

Psalms for Little Hearts became available for sale March 5, 2019.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for this review.
