Artist Spotlight: Maeve Haslett

Hi! I'm Maeve and I'm from Belfast, Northern Ireland but currently live in Surrey, England where I am Head of Art at a secondary school. Even though I consider myself an illustrator now, I actually studied Textile Art as my degree, which I completed in 2015. I like to think this is where my love for texture has come from! Read more →

Artist Spotlight : Ruth Bennett

Hi! I’m Ruth, and I currently reside in a small country village in Norfolk, England. I have always been creative and love to doodle. As a kid I would constantly doodle all over my workbooks in school! I studied animation at university and since graduating I have worked as a freelance illustrator for The Bright Agency. I love picture books and creating exciting stories in my head so feel very lucky to be working in children’s illustration at the moment! I also love creating fun, silly characters and will occasionally dabble in animation as well.

Hi! I love long walks and hiking trails, fresh baked bread straight from the oven, and sunny parks with lots of grassy hills; they make for the best reading spots. I have a professional background in digital marketing within the publishing industry, but have recently made the switch to working for a non-profit organization specializing in supporting libraries, a job change I’m very excited about. One big thing about me is I’m a huge bookworm. The other, is that I never leave my house without a sketchbook and a prisma pencil. I’m mostly self-taught, and have just recently made a serious commitment to learning more about children’s book illustration. So far I'm taking classes, developing my portfolio, and just soaking in as much as I can (and meeting some fabulous artists along the way!)
