I'm an illustrator, author and textile designer living in South Devon with my partner and daughter. It's a peaceful place surrounded by beautiful beaches and countryside.
I illustrate, screen print, sew and write books. I love bold, happy designs that appeal to children and adults alike. My purpose in life is to bring joy into other people's lives by creating happy illustrations for children's books, wall art, mugs and other products.
I've been screen printing for many years now and am strongly influenced by Scandinavian design. I particularly like design from the 50's and 60's and have a large collection of fabrics and ceramics from these periods. I love early Marimekko fabric designs and the work by Lucienne Day. I also love the artwork by Dick Bruna and Alain Gree.
I've been fortunate to have been given a three book deal with Anova (now Pavilion) - Fun With Fabric, Creative Craft With Kids and Jane Foster's Colouring Book. I have nine pre-school books published by Templar - Jane Foster's ABC, 123, First Words, Colours, Stripy Tiger Pattern Book, Black and White, Brown Bear Colour Book, Animal Sounds and Things That Go. Several more are due later this year including four city guide books for toddlers - London, New York, Washington and Paris. I also have a new children's cross stitch sewing book out in June called 'Stitching With Jane Foster' published by the US publisher Quarto.
In 2014, I won the Mollie Makes Established Handmade Business Award.
