Cally studied illustration at Newcastle Art College and since graduating has worked in the children's design industry. She spent 6 fun filled years as an in-house artist for Hallmark Cards before going on to become a freelance illustrator.
She now has her own home studio with a lovely view of the Northumberland countryside.
Inspiration for her work comes from almost anything: a pretty tea set, hill walking, tending her vegetable patch, even panda bears. (Though she's yet to meet one).
