Amy grew up in a shoe-making, beer-brewing town in England with her mum and dad, two sisters and many, many pets. She went to Loughborough University and studied Fine Art but after graduating and working in a primary school, realised what she really wanted to do was make children's books. Amy has worked creating picture books with Lion Children's Books, Oxford University Press and Sky Pony Press and has had illustrations published by Highlights magazine.

She is represented by Plum Pudding Illustration agency.
