Anthea Whitworth

The moment that I saw the exquisite illustrations of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac I knew that I wanted to be an illustrator. As far back as I can remember I have had a pencil in my hand, scribbling away, and coloured pencils have always been my favourite medium.

I live in Harlow, Essex with my partner James and I have just graduated from Cambridge School of Art with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration. It has been a wonderful opportunity to immerse myself in my drawing. As well as a love of fairytales and their rich opportunities for illustration, I like to capture moments in time; glimpses of innocence and wonder, simple pleasures.

Over the years I have worked part-time in illustration and held exhibitions of my work. It is such a pleasure to see people’s reactions to my work – if my work makes others happy it makes me happy. To be a full time illustrator and bring joy through my work is my idea of heaven.

My favourite things are walks by the sea, holidays with James, dogs, daisies and coloured pencils.
