Beccy has been a freelance children's illustrator since leaving the University of Northumbria in Newcastle-upon-Tyne with a BA(hons) in graphic design and illustration. She was born in Hampshire and had a country upbringing in a scatty household full of cats, dogs, ducks, hens, rabbits, goldfish and goats, little brothers and a pet chicken called Victoria which have all appeared at some stage or another in her quirky illustrations.
She has worked extensively in the fields of publishing, design and advertising, editorial, greetings cards and one-off commissions and exciting art projects for a number of clients both here in the UK and overseas. She mainly works in pencil, crayon, acrylics, pen and ink and also digital media, often combining the two.
She currently lives in Bath with her partner, also an illustrator, and 2 crazy kids and Ozzy Pink who is a big macho tabby cat totally unimpressed with his second name.
