01 about

Beccy is a children’s illustrator and artist, with a love of all things slightly bonkers which invariably end up in her pictures and paintings. She loves observing life and all the silly side it brings, her illustrations make her young audience smile when they’re reading a book and add to the story within. Since leaving art college in Newcastle upon Tyne she has worked extensively in the world of childrens publishing, design and advertising, editorial, greetings cards and one off mural and art commissions, both here in the UK and overseas. She works mainly in pencil, acrylics, watercolour, pen and ink and digital media often combining all.

 

She recently decorated an “Owl of Bath”, Mowlberry Beak, which is currently situated in Combe Down, Bath and is working on painting a lion for The Cinnamon Cafe in Windsor, part of the Lions of Windsor trail. 

 

She is currently based in Bath with her partner, also an illustrator, 2 kids, 2 cats called Ozzy and Elsie (who have their own comic illustrated for them), and a pond full of newts and frogs.
