Gemma was born in Sheffield and moved to Wrexham to study Illustration at North East Wales Institute where she gained a first class degree. She won two awards at the New Designers Exhibition in 2006 which resulted in her being offered her first commission as a children’s book illustrator.
Gemma now lives in Chester with her partner, Chris and a large collection of toy robots. As well as working on picture books Gemma illustrates greetings cards and in her spare time loves to make jewellery and continue adding to her ever growing collection of postcards.
