25 children’s books by the writer and illustrator

Based in the Midlands, Beth lives her childhood daydreams of drawing all day long and works as a freelance designer. Since 2003, as well as illustrating beautiful patterns for colouring books, Beth has been creating artwork for a range of products, from babywear to chocolate boxes, greetings cards to textiles. Beth enjoys the variety of her work and has a passion for sweet characters and all things pretty! Rachel Cloyne has worked as a freelance illustrator since graduating from Brighton University with a degree in Illustration. During this time she has produced a variety of published work ranging from educational pieces to children's pop- up books. She has an eye for patterns and is inspired by nature, architecture and an eclectic mix of design influences. She seamlessly combines ink and computer techniques to create unique and dynamic images which inspire the imagination and demand a closer look. Her clients include Tango Books, Starshine Music and Buster Books. Her most recent title includes 'Snow White and Rose Red' published by Tango Books in 2012. Rachel's work also features in the 'Girls Gorgeous World' Doodling and Colouring book;out later this year- published by Buster Books. I was born and brought up in Primrose Hill in London. I studied Fine Art at Hornsey School of Art but turned to illustration on leaving. In the early years I subsidised my career with gardening and working in a cinema. Now, I am lucky enough to spend my days drawing in a studio overlooking the garden of my home in Hackney. I have illustrated books by authors such as Dick King-Smith, Linda Chapman and Herbie Brennan and worked for publishers including Puffin, Ladybird and Buster Books. Louise Anglicas is an English based illustrator specialising in childrens illustration and greeting card design, as well as ceramics, wall art and housewares design too. Louise was born in Manchester in 1973 where she grew up, but now lives just down the road in the heart of The Potteries, Staffordshire with her partner and two young daughters. From an early age, the artistic tendencies were evident. Never without felt tips and pencil crayons in hand, illustrating anything from school fete posters, to a picture bingo travel version, to entertain her sisters on the long road trips to summer holidays in North Wales! She went on to study at Staffordshire University, where she graduated with a degree in Ceramics and Surface Pattern Design, so naturally, started her career working as an in-house designer for a local long established ceramic manufacturer. One of her main achievements here, was being instrumental in securing the Harry Potter license; working on the creative bid and snatching it from the clutches of much larger big name companies in the pottery industry! It was a great experience to learn the ropes of a fast paced industry entrenched in trends, pattern and colour and enabled Louise to combine her love of creating pattern, detail, and textures with the fabulous versatility of design produced through the technology of Mac computers! Being established as a freelancer designer for many years since, and after having had two lovely daughters, Louise has naturally ventured into to the wonderful world of childrens illustration, where her love of pattern and design is being applied anew. It's a fabulous area and new challenge that she relishes, and hopes to expand on and improve in for many years to come. It is a career that is forever rewarding and challenging, and she feels very lucky to be able to do this for a living!
