My name is Marion and I am a children’s book illustrator who makes pictures with ink, pencils and a computer. I often use a mishmash of techniques to create my illustrations and patterns and I really like making up characters whether they be human, animal or somewhere in between.
In 2010 I graduated from an MA in children’s book illustration at Cambridge School of Art and since then I have illustrated lots of wonderful children’s books including the chapter book series Zoey and Sassafras by Asia Citro, Maisie Hitchins by Holly Webb and Bella Donna by Ruth Symes. As well as illustrating stories I love to create patterns and designs – have a look at the range of scarves I designed for children’s clothing company Grubbies.
I regularly hold children’s drawing and collage workshops in collaboration with Cambridgeshire libraries and love passing on my enthusiasm about illustration and books to children as well as seeing the wonderful characters they create.
