About Norris and the Flamingo

Norris and the Flamingo

Picture and story-making for special people

I take inspiration from the personal stories of the people around me. I have found a natural audience in my children, and make pictures and books which explore creative ways to connect with their favourite themes as they grow and develop. Coupled with the inevitable desire to celebrate life’s most significant times and places, from births and weddings to the local park, I find myself with a collection of work that’s deeply personal and anchored in love, friendship, childhood and family.

I work in collage and mixed media and, having embraced traditional crafts throughout my life, I bind my own books, experimenting with different techniques that reflect the personality and audience of each project.

Between work and childcare, I have found a way to carve out precious time each week for illustration, allowing me to complete a small number of projects each year. If you would like to discuss my work and the possibility of a collaboration or commission, please feel free to contact me.
