I am a children's illustrator - fortunately I inherited by Dad's genes (he created the Poddington Peas!). I love the job and get to work from home, and I am currently designing my own characters for a hopefully long- running book series.
I lived in Nottingham for 12 years but last year moved back down south to be close to my parents and friends and it was definitely the best thing I could have done - working from home does give you the freedom to live where you want to be, rather than where you have to.
Relationship-wise, I am somewhat of a late-bloomer. I havn't had a lot of experience - for one reason or another love hasn't come my way, although I have been blessed with the love of good friends and a close family. I am hoping online dating may be the solution.
As to a detailed description of who I am, perhaps that's best to discover rather than list here. I have been told by my friends that these profiles don't do me justice, or maybe I am just lousy at filling them out. All I will say is that I am a decent, sensitive and honest person who is into geeky things, but without being unsociable. Physically I need to shed a few pounds and trying to work on that, but I don't have any serious vices - well maybe trifle and chocolate... I love tennis and ping pong but I'm not what you would call athletic, I like a lot of music but films are my real passion. I love animals (and choose not to eat some of them) but tend to kill plants.
