Jackie graduated from UCL with a first class honours degree in History of Art with Material Science & Technology. She has worked various roles in creative fields, gaining experience in London, Hong Kong, and Valencia. After wearing a variety of hats within galleries & museums, film/media production, journalism, IP and brand development and digital marketing, Jackie flew into Children’s Books at Storymix whilst working casually as a freelance artist, designer, and prop-maker. She learned a lot at this fiction production company/book packager and remains committed to increasing diversity and authentic representation in Children’s books. Jackie is now lucky enough to spread her wings into Non-Fiction at Nosy Crow, working with an incredible team on the award-winning Novelty, Non-Fiction, Preschool and Tie-In lists that help children foster kindness, have fun, and make sense of the big wide world!
Outside of books, Jackie is often found around nature, animals, arts & crafts, music, and their friends.
Jackie uses both she/they pronouns (either is fine!).
