Cassia was born and raised in North London. She drew (a lot), grew (a little), and eventually, in 2008, received an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art.
Since then she has eaten a substantial amount of cake, watched far too much vampire-related telly… and her books have been published internationally.
Cassia has been twice selected for The Cheltenham Illustration Award Show, and she has exhibited alongside Wayne Anderson and Shaun Tan at The Lightbox, Woking.
She has worked as a Teaching Assistant and a Nursery Nurse and now offers talks, tuition and workshops in drawing and illustration for all ages.
Cassia is now based in Hitchin, Herts, where she lives with her game-making partner Liam and their three small people - one hairy, two noisy… all smelly!
