Encouraged by artistic parents, Heidi spent much of her early life drawing, but she fell in love with ceramics at university and spent the next 20 years covered in clay.
In 2014, Heidi found herself with three children under four, and joined an online illustration challenge during naptime to stay sane. She was offered her first illustration contract six months later. Cupboards overflowing with picture books inspired Heidi to start putting words to her pictures, and her first book as author/illustrator, Kate and the Thing, was released in 2018.
Heidi enjoys writing quirky stories with engaging characters and illustrates digitally using ‘watercolor’ brushes and multiple layers.
With more than a dozen books under her belt, Heidi now divides her time between illustrating, writing and playing with clay
