I had been involved as a fashion artist for many years, but when the advent of new techniques in photography and then the possibilities of computer design was used more frequently, we fashion illustrators had a hard time finding work. I started to look around for illustration outlets in books and enjoying the freedom of pleasing myself in what I drew. My interest in historic costume gave me ideas for children's books. I was being asked to illustrate more. Things had come round full circle, for at last I was doing what I had always dreamed of doing since I had left art school. I recent years I have published my own travel sketchbooks. Also, this year (2015) I have worked on a book of poems by a Polish writer, a book for children in both English and Polish.
