Middle Grade Children's Book Illustration
I have recently finished working with Joanna to illustrate my first book. Working with her has been an absolute joy. Her imagination and ability to connect to the story and to capture the personalities of the various characters has brought the book to life. As well as her artistic talent, through her vast experience in the publishing world, she was able to guide me through the daunting process of getting my first book published with invaluable advice and wisdom. I can't thank her enough for her patience and support!

Joanna is a wonderfully creative illustrator, very engaging, great fun, and a delight to work with. I wanted to be able to work with an illustrator, not to just hand over a manuscript. Joanna helped to develop a highly effective working partnership, introducing me to other creative professionals. She has brought ideas and proposed changes to the characters and to the story, which has greatly enhanced the book. Joanna has also provided the drawings and input to support the development of a toy Tom Mouse - the first wave of 300 mice will shortly be on their way from China to support the sales of the picture book, You Can Do It Tom Mouse! I will always be a great advocate of Joanna and her work. A highly talented illustrator, able to work with the customer to help shape and create a wonderful product.

I've worked with Joanna on two children's brands, Paddington Bear and The World of Dinosaur Roar. Her illustration styles were ideal for both briefs. She brought to life the pose ideas for Paddington Bear in an accurate and charming way. And her skill at line art was ideal for translating the CGI Dinosaur poses into a more accessible format for a series of activity videos. Always on time and lovely to work with.

Joanna was a dream to work with as an illustrator. As a publisher I am always looking for people who can take initiative and still provide me with exactly what I want, Joanna was amazing and seemed to read my mind, knowing what would work even if I didn't. Her work was excellent but it was her attitude to the work that would make me happy to work with her again.
