Beccy is an experienced children’s illustrator and artist, with a love of all things humorous which invariably end up in her pictures and paintings. She enjoys exploring ideas and narrative from simply drawing imaginative and amusing concepts through to beautifully coloured artwork and bespoke pieces. She loves observing life and all the silly side it brings, her illustrations make her young audience smile whether they’re reading a book she's illustrated or an animation she's storyboarded for. Since leaving art college in Newcastle upon Tyne she has worked extensively in the world of childrens publishing, animation, design and advertising, editorial, greetings cards and bespoke 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.
As well as regular illustration commissions she's been working with Complete Control, a double Bafta winning childrens digital multimedia Studio, based in Bath, on the first, second and third series of Nick Cope’s Popcast for CBeebies.
She recently painted an “Owl of Bath”, Mowlberry Beak, which is currently on public display at Mulberry Hub in Combe Down, Bath and also painted a lion for the Lions of Windsor trail, which is currently on public display at The Cinnamon Cafe in Windsor.
She is based in Bath with her partner, also an illustrator and artist, 2 kids, 2 cats called Milo and Elsie, and a pond full of newts and the odd frog.
Beccs has brought so much joy, fun and charm to our TV series, Nick Copes Popcast in the form of her wonderful storyboards which simply blow us away every time. Beccs has a natural creative ability to capture the essence and charm of the characters and tell wonderful little stories through her talent as an illustrator. Beccs is also a fantastic member of the team and been a real joy to work so closely with on the series. Glynn Hayward / Creative Director / Complete Control
Beccy is a wonderful and greatly accomplished artist who I’ve been lucky enough to work with on a very diverse range of books. No matter the project, Beccy has always given it a beautiful, individual look. Beccy can turn her hand to any topic, but her animal characters are my absolute favourite, with their innate cheeky charm. Her artwork is always delivered swiftly and within schedule and she’s extremely adept at communicating and responding to comments. I cannot recommend her art, or working with her, highly enough.

I recently worked with Beccy on a project for CBeebies and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She is incredibly creative, her work is beautiful and she is so easy to work with. A very good team player and someone I would happily work with again. Sara Darling / Animation Producer
