Photo of Erin

Erin is a Northern Irish illustrator who lives and works on the beautiful island of Jersey.

After graduating university with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art, a passion for stories and children’s books took hold and she completed a diploma in Illustrating Children’s Books with the London Art College.

She combines her love for hand drawn lines and traditional techniques with the flexibility and freedom of adding colour digitally. She has worked with clients such as Oxford University Press, Egmont Publishing and Stripes Publishing.

Her love of stories comes from her Grandad who lived by the sea and was always ready with a tale or two - and a biscuit.

When she is not working in her tiny studio, she can be found baking something overly sweet, exploring the forests and cliff paths of Jersey, or down at the sea shore watching the tide roll in.

She frequently takes part in @Clr_Collective, a weekly Twitter art challenge that features a given colour.
