Hello, it's Bethan here, and here's a little bit about me.
I'm a creative soul, and even as a little girl, I knew I wanted to be some sort of artist. I'm happiest with my apron on and paint on my easel, and I'm fortunate enough to have created a career for myself in the arts. While studying for a degree in illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, I discovered my passion for telling stories with my pictures, and even penned my very first book Little Red while at university! Little Red was my empowered retelling of the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood, and it won the Macmillan Children's Book Competition in 2014, launching the beginning of my career in children's books.
Encouraged to create more fractured fairytales, I continued my fairytale series with Rapunzel and Hansel & Gretel, and have since been working on my very own original tales, including I Can Catch a Monster, Three Little Vikings, and Luna & the Sky Dragon. I also joined forces with author Caryl Hart, illustrating several non-fiction books including Meet the Planets, Meet the Oceans, and Meet the Weather.
I live and work in Sheffield along with my partner and two scruffy dogs, Podrick and Panko.
I am being represented by Paul Moreton at Bell Lomax Moreton Literary Agency. For all literary and book illustration enquiries, please contact Bell Lomax Moreton here.
